Deep Crimson with a purple hue. Lifted aromas of complex dark berries with underlying savoury earthy notes. The palate shows fresh sweet berry fruits of blueberries and spice. Overall, you will find smooth silkiness to balance the fine chewy tannins of the Cabernet.
Rockcliffe Winery's stunning quality is demonstrated in this Cabernet Sauvignon. A Gold medal at the Six Nations Wine Challenge is a significant achievement.
Pairs really well with something rich, strong and meaty. The moist, fleshy roasted duck can also be accentuated by the toasted oak and spices in the Cabernet.
