2015 The B.I.G., Blank Bottle, Western Cape

This is a stunning Cabernet that's lofty in conception and faultless in delivery. There's precise black fruit with a lift of pepper and spice, lively acidity and very fine-grained tannin. It's elegant but intense with fantastic balance.

TASTING NOTES

One of half a dozen Cabernets in the BLANK bottle range, this is something of a misnomer in that it’s the most elegant of the group. Sourced from high altitude vineyards in Ceres, it’s fresh and refined, with some spice, grassy, red plum-like fruit and fine-grained tannins.
