The powerful Cabernet Sauvignon & Shiraz from Simonsig glides into the glass with a dense crimson. Ideally poured into a Bordeaux glass, this red wine from South Africa reveals wonderfully expressive aromas of blueberry, blackberry, blackcurrant and mulberry, rounded off by vanilla, dark chocolate and cocoa bean, which the ageing in the wooden barrel contributes.
The Cabernet Sauvignon & Shiraz from Simonsig is the right choice for all connoisseurs who like as little residual sweetness in the wine as possible. However, it is never sparse or brittle. This powerful and dense red wine is powerful and complex on the palate. With its lively fruit acidity, the Cabernet Sauvignon & Shiraz is wonderfully fresh and lively on the palate. In the finish this storable red wine from the wine-growing region Coastal Region inspires finally with considerable length. There are again hints of mulberry and blackberry.
