A well balanced red blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from the Banghoek valley in Stellenbosch, showing a lively ruby colour in the glass. vibrant notes of plums, chocolate, a hint of vanilla and cedar, alongside dried leaves, fennel and violets. A surprisingly weighty mid-palate and a juicy red fruit finish.
Grape: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot
Food Match: Grilled meats and roasted veggie dishes
Style: Savoury & Full Bodied
We tried this on its own and with Sunday roast last weekend and it does not disappoint. As Olde World wine fans you're always a bit iffy when buying outside your comfort zone but this Oldenburg CL blend works very well with and without food. Go for it!
This wine is beautifully complex for the price and worth every penny. Great fruit flavours with subtle hints of vanilla and spiced plum. Really enjoyable and pairs great with sticky pork
