Platter * * * 1/2 – Sweet-fruited 2016 has dashes Cab Franc & Shiraz in support, ample black fruit & enough tannic grip.
The individual components of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Shiraz were kept separate in large French oak fermenters for a period of 12 months before being carefully blended. Thereafter the blend spent another 12 months in 2nd and 3rd fill barrels. This Cabernet-led blend is the most popular wine in the Capaia range, and it is easy to understand why. Uncomplicated – yet refined – this wine tick all the boxes of a high quality wine at an affordable price. The nose soft and alluring with the pallet following – yielding tannins with a velvet finish.
Perfect food partner with meat dishes, pastas and poultry.
