Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon - Merlot


 
Variety – Cabernet Sauvignon 50%, Merlot 50%


Ageing – 12 months in barrel.


Temperature – Serve at 18-20°C


Origin – Eikendal Wine Estate vineyard, Stellenbosch.


Alcohol – 14,5%


Ageing Potential – good now or over the next 4-5 years.



Tasting notes

The Eikendal Cabernet Sauvignon-Merlot 2015 has a deep red colour with some tawny development. It is very expressive with ripe
blackberry and blackcurrant characters dominating the nose. The characteristic cassis and earthiness of Cabernet Sauvignon is
clearly evident. Spicy and sweet French oak complement and balance the fruit. Fleshy and concentrated fruit is supported by a
backbone of fine-grained tannins. The ripeness of the fruit is reflected in sweet and long finish.



Pairing

Pair with carpaccio, roasted beef short rib and lamb curry.
