2006 Steytler Vision

Tasting Note:

Very intense ruby deepening to an opaque heart; densely layered fruit enfolds tightly woven tannins and spicy oak with ease, creating a richly textured mouthful; delivers great pleasure already but has the poise and power to richly reward 4 to 6 years of cellaring.

Independents Note:

The mix of fruits is rich and powerful filling the nose with a mix of flavours. The palate has lots of complexity, a depth and weight of fruit backed by a firm structure. Cassis and chocolate enrich whilst black plum adds flesh but this powerful mix is brightened by fresher fruits, bilberry and raspberry leading the way. Derek Smedley MW 92 points

Grapes:

50 % Cabernet Sauvignon 35 % Pinotag 15 % Merlot

What to eat with:

Mature for up to 10 years.
