Skemerlig Cabernet Sauvignon, Kaapzicht

Previously 'Kaapzicht Cabernet Sauvignon', renamed with the prefix 'Skemerlig' meaning 'dusk', the perfect time to enjoy a glass

Full-bodied dry red wine with an abundance of blackcurrant, fynbos and fennel with inky succulence and firm well-managed tannins. The rich fruit is beautifully balanced with integrated oak flavours lending depth and complexity.
