2012 Project U12 North Block Cabernet Sauvignon
Lifted aromas of dark and red berry fruits with hints of dark chocolate, bayleaf and cedar
The palate displays sweet dark and red berry fruit with hints of bayleaf and dark chocolate adding a savoury element to the wine. The wine is rich and complex with excellent structure and balance supported by fine-grained layered tannins and seamlessly integrated French oak.
The ideal match for protein-rich red meats; a marbled beef fillet or slow-cooked lamb shanks accompanied by roasted vegetables.
