CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2018 Vegan, sustainable, WO Swartland
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer ORG DE RAC
Assessed from a bottle purchased at the LCBO. NEW in Vintages, this 100% organic Swartland Cabernet Sauvignon has an extremely deep intense purple colour. The nose is huge with intense, baked Damson plums and lots of somewhat herbal, cedary notes. It’s dry and grippy on the palate with intense, high acid, baked plum and tomato leaf flavours plus lots of cedary, somewhat herbal, faintly bitter notes lingering on the finish. A good foil for smoky bbq ribs. Has 14.5% alcohol and 3.6 g/L residual sugar with lot number L19254 on the back label. Screwcap closure. CSPC 18699

TASTING NOTE: This wine comprises the best-performing of six Cabernet Sauvignon clones grown on separate sites. These are each vinified and aged separately before being selected for the final cuvée. The resulting wine is a complex, layered expression of the best that the vintage has given. Cellar for 3+ years or enjoy tonight with a dried-shiitake mushroom burger.
