Glen Carlou Gravel Quarry

Cabernet Sauvignon, 2004

South Africa Red

Paarl 75cl

This is the premium red wine from Glen Carlou and is composed of 93% Cab. Sauv. and 7% Petit Verdot aged for 16 months in new French oak.
Deliciously sweet nose of stewed prune and aged Port.
Plenty of fruit on the palate too and some cedary European character as well. Whilst being pretty mouthfilling it has really quite supple soft tannins.
A very well balanced wine especially as it's so young (in fact i would probably opt for drinking this within the nexr 5years to be on the safe side) I think this is a 20+ wine and is one of only a few South African wines i have tried that lives up to the price tag
