2014 Main Road & Dignity Cabernet Sauvignon, Restless River, Upper Hemel-en-Aarde

This Cabernet Sauvignon would look at home in Bordeaux, with its crunchy dark fruit, fine-grained tannins, and hints of store-cupboard spice. Give it a few years, and you’ll have a brilliant bottle of wine on your hands.

TASTING NOTES

Not many Cape producers make world-class Cabernet Sauvignon as well as Chardonnay, but Restless River does. This grassy, elegant, Margaux-like varietal is beautifully focused, floral and textured with wonderful lightness of touch, subtle oaking and a leafy, refreshing finish.
