Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2017, Waterford Estate

£31.50 per bottle

About this wine

Waterford Estate Cabernet Sauvignon has been produced for over two decades, and has systematically increased in quality, more consistently expressing the terroir of the Helderberg Mountains. The 2017 vintage shows off pure fruit and earthy notes complimented by a classical pencil lead aroma. A typical dry tannin structure with seamless balance to finish.

Food pairing: With classical earthy and savoury characteristics along with a dry tannin structure this wine pairs well with classic red meat dishes seasoned with cracked sea salt and other savoury dishes.

    string(589) "One of the most ubiquitous grape varieties in the world; Cabernet Sauvignon. Together with Pinot Noir it vies for the crown of greatest red variety in the world. So multifaceted and so adaptable, it is as happy in the Pauillac vineyards of Château Latour as it is in the high altitude vineyards of the Andes. So suited to oak and with a firm tannic backbone, it is very often utilised as part of a blend. Though Bordeaux is its natural home, it has spread through the wine world, finding notable homes in Stellenbosch, Coonawarra, Langhorne Creek and the Barossa Valley to name but a few."
