Stellenzicht Tristone Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Stellenzicht Tristone Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

R225,00

Tristone refers to the three types of sandstone soils that our Cabernet Sauvignon vines are grown in. Each soil type brings a unique element to the wine. This wine showcases the terroir of these soils through its elegant balance between fruit, structure and lingering tannins. Cassis and cedar notes with hints of spice. Succulence balanced by fine tannins and supported by savoury oak notes. Approachable now, but with ample potential for development.
