Kanonkop Kadette Cape Blend Pinotage Cabernet Merlot 2018
Tasting Notes: The bright ruby colour of this wine is complimented on the nose by attractive aromas of red currants, cherries, spice and a touch of mocha. The palate is lively and fresh, with succulent raspberry flavours. The fruit is supported by a firm, yet silky tannin structure. Savoury notes persist on the lengthy finish.
Chill it down for a refreshing summer drink with seafood or serve at room temperature with meat or Italian style dishes.
