Fleur du Cap
Essence du Cap Cabernet Sauvignon
This full-bodied wine is ruby red in color with subtle aromas of ripe berries and cherries, and hints of pencil shavings ending in subtle oak spices. On the palate this well-balanced wine is velvety soft yet mouth filling with clean, soft fruit and elegant oak spice with gentle tannins.
Ideal with hearty dishes such as Osso Bucco, lamb shank or roast lamb with rosemary and sage.
About the Winemaker
Fleur du Cap (French for “Flower of the Cape”) is greatly inspired by the Cape Floral Kingdom – a wildflower region famed for its natural beauty and rich biodiversity – with each species blossoming in the specific soil and climate best suited to their needs. It is this Cape Floral Kingdom that has greatly inspired our wines to not be defined by a single place or vineyard. Our philosophy is based around the freedom to explore – to find our grapes where they grow best, rather than be constrained by district, farm, climate or even vineyard. Our winemakers have access to the widest geography of vineyards in South Africa. This unrestricted journey across the Cape Winelands is what allows them to craft highly-lauded wines which exemplify regional excellence. --
