Lavina Elicere Cabernet Sauvignon

Cracka Review

The Elicere range features wines that display great elegance and finesse. These wines have been fastidiously crafted and styled to be sumptuous and expressive yet exquisite and refined. Fruit of the highest quality was carefully selected to produce wines that are a beautiful definition of the terroir of the region. Powerful but not too dominating the wines are perfectly balanced and restrained making them an excellent choice for pairing with any fine cuisine.

Appearance: Dense, blackish purple with a garnet hue.

Nose: Lively and seductive fragrances of fresh mulberries and blueberries woven through distinct aromas of eucalypt, wild mint, and exotic spices.

Palate: A youthful and exuberant wine bursting with intense flavours of blackcurrants, cherries and blueberry fruits complemented by underlying notes of dark chocolate, espresso coffee, leather and toasty French oak. Mouth filling opulence is perfectly balanced with fine, elegant tannins that slide across the palate with a savoury, long and satisfying finish.

Serving & Cellaring: Luscious and lively in its youth this wine will continue to develop in complexity for 10 years. Store wine lying down at a constant temperature of 15-18 Degree Celsius. Decanting is recommended to open up the flavours and enhance the full appreciation of the wine.
