Avontuur Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Avontuur Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Aroma: The nose is redolent of dark fruit with Cassis dominating, and an interesting spiciness featuring whiffs of cloves and cigar box when getting up close and personal!
Flavour: Typical example of an elegant Helderberg region Cabernet Sauvignon with ripe purple fruit and attractive tannins giving the desired backbone to this well-balanced, full-bodied wine. Good ageing potential.

Fillet steak with a red wine reduction, Ostrich kebabs, Full-flavoured red meat dishes and casseroles.
