Cape Landing Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2018


Great to see a premium Marg River Cab which already has some maturity to it. Ten months maturation in French oak with the grapes from twenty-year-old vines, the Houghton clone. Dark garnet/maroon in colour. There are aromas swirling about – aniseed, chocolate, smoked meats, spices, soy, truffles, mocha and coffee beans. Excellent balance, which is just as we see throughout the entire range, and still youthful but with good focus. Thanks to fine acidity, silky tannins and very impressive length to finish, this has ten to fifteen years ahead of it.
