Appealing aromas of spicy fruitcake, black cherry, blackcurrant and cedar. A nuanced, layered and silky textured palate which abounds with richly ripe black fruits - cherry, blackcurrant, cassis - tempered by harmonious oak which is superbly integrated, making for a harmonious whole.
Ere are cigar-box and spice notes apparent too, along with an inky depth of flavour.
Overall, the Cape of Good Hope Riebeeksrivier Western Slopes is a rened and elegant wine with silky tannins, a plush opulence and a long, lingering aftertaste.
