This is backed up with a combination of blackberries, raspberries, hints of spice and pencil shaving which is haracteristic to Cabernet Sauvignon from the Helderberg region.
Palate : A well-integrated wine, with subtle tannins and juicy mouth feel. The dark fruit shows exceptional follow through, and the wine has great structure, and a long lingering finish. Impression : “Jean Engelbrecht’s appreciation for Napa Styled Cabernet Sauvignons is the inspiration behind this wine. It will develop and mature beautifully over the next few years.”
Appearance: Bright Ruby Red

Impression : “The three varietals each contribute unique flavours and character to the wine to make this a wonderful drinking experience. The wine will mature and soften beautifully over the next 5 years.”
