De Wet & Rapoport Claime d'Or Cabernet Sauvignon Cabern

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

This is a pretty solid style of red out of South Africa that would benefit from extra time in the cellar, or a decent decant before serving. Smells of ripe plums and blackcurrants climb out of the glass, along with hints of crushed leaves and earthy spices. The palate is fullsome and quite spicy, with a bit of grip to the tannins, a tight line of acidity, and a fruit and spice finish with a kick of toasty oak in the tail. Rare roasted red meats is the go with this pup!

Winemaker's Notes

This is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Cabernet Franc. Ripe red berries and cherry fruit abound in this blend of two noble varieties. The palate offers structure from youthful tannins and the spicy finish is reminiscent of cherry tobacco, white pepper and cloves. Will improve with ageing for at least 5 years. A perfect partner for Rump Steak, Rare Roast Beef and hearty Bean Casseroles.
