Kanonkop Kadette Cape Blend Pinotage Cabernet Merlot 2017
Tasting Notes: A deep ruby red colour, with notes of blackcurrant, tea leaves and vanilla spice on the nose, which follows through to the palate. A well balanced structure with fresh acidity and dry appetising finish. This wine will keep developing in the bottle for the next 7 -10 years.
Chill it down for a refreshing summer drink with seafood or serve at room temperature with meat or Italian style dishes.
