MENU’s Wine of the Week. 2018 Meerhof Cabernet Sauvignon from Riebeek Kasteel

made by Cellarmaster Jaco Brand

This classic Cabernet blew us away with its quality and fruit. Cassis fruit with some spice on the nose. 50/50 French and American oak has been used which adds complexity. It is a beautiful, cassis driven wine, layered with good black currant berry fruit, lovely soft tannins, and the fruit returns for a long end. We bought six immediately
One to watch, we think that it is good enough to win major awards; a bargain at R95 on the farm. Do go and taste if you are in the area
