Buitenverwachting’s Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot is a classic left bank Bordeaux style blend, with the juicy Merlot grape offsetting the more structured Cabernet perfectly. Grapes for this Bordeaux-inspired red yield from Buitenverwachting’s cool estate vineyards in Constantia, and the wine was aged for 24 months in second and third-fill French oak barrels, where it also underwent malolactic fermentation. Bright, stylish aromas of cassis, plums and pencil lead give way to a complex, structured palate that marries ripe fruit with mineral nuances and an aromatic, fragrant finish.
