Kaapzicht Steytler Vision 2005 (Cape Blend)

Kaapzicht Steytler Vision 2005 (Cape Blend)

Very intense ruby deepening to an opaque heart; densely layered fruit enfolds tightly woven tannins and spicy oak with ease, creating a richly textured mouthful; delivers great pleasure already but has the poise and power to richly reward 4 to 6 years of cellaring.
Elsie Pels - Cape Wine Master
