MENU's Wine of the Week, Arendsig Blok A9 Cabernet Sauvignon

This lovely juicy red wine is exactly what Cabernet Sauvignon should taste like; you could use it in a classroom to showcase it.  
But it also has so much more.  Lots of cassis (blackcurrant) fruit, great minerality, good wooding that doesn't overtake the wine, soft chalky tannins from the chalky soil it is grown on.  A food wine and a wine with good aging potential. Available from the farm at a very reasonable price. You are getting quality that could cost three times as much, and often does.  Go and try it for yourself. Also available from fine wine merchants. Arendsig means Eagle View. R115 from the farm
