Sutherland Cabernet Sauvignon 2021
Vibrant, dark ruby in colour, this fruit driven, complex wine displays layers of dark berry fruit flavours and prominent cassis on the nose which follow through onto the palate with the additional intrigue of spice. Seamless tannins supported by the fruit intensity have combined to create a wine that provides a satisfying and lingering mouth feel.
Red meat (especially game), strong cheeses.
