La Cave Cape Blend 2017
Inviting array of dark fruits, graphite, clove and tea leave aromas on the nose, underpinned by a subtle whiff of iodine. The palate has a lovely sweet-fruited core of ripe plums, with muscular tannins and a bright seam of acidity to hold everything in place. Notes of marzipan lingering on the long, dry finish. This wine exhibits the complexity and finesse of the 2017 vintage.
