Longridge Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
Aroma Profile Africa’s only indigenous red wine cultivar from parent grapes Pinot Noir and Hermitage (Cinsault). Stylistically we focus on the fruit and characteristics of the Pinot Noir. An elegant, well rounded wine with soft juicy tannins, the nose offers sweet spices, cassis and ripe berries, sugared orange peel, rooibos and a smoky charcuterie character, which follows through onto the palate, with a savoury lingering aftertaste. Terroir Rooted in deep decomposed granite over clay soils on the slopes of the Helderberg Mountain. The vineyards enjoy the refreshingly cool breezes from False Bay (Atlantic Ocean) during the hot and dry summer days, and cool mountain winds during the evening, resulting in even ripening of the berries.
We recommend decanting the wine prior to service.
