Beyerskloof Faith Cape Blend 2009

Beyerskloof Faith Cape Blend 2009

Colour:  Dark Ruby red colour with bright edges.

Bouquet:  Upfront dark fruit and plum aromas with sublte cedar and mocha oak on the nose.

Tasting Notes:  Intense blackberry, cassis and plum flavours upon entry with delicate spice and cedar aromas from the new French oak. A big structured, well rounded and elegantly balanced Cape blend. Hints of mocha and dark chocolate compliment a great finish. This wine will age well for 10 - 15 years. An ideal match for lamb shank, oxtail or a South African game potjie.
