Cape Heights

Cabernet Sauvignon, 2018

South Africa Red

Western Cape 75cl

Often overlooked as the Shiraz is superb value and the Merlot very plush and drinkable.
All the Cape Heights (red) wines are impressively dark in the glass and this is no exception, the nose is quite savoury with herbs and meaty notes to accompany a hint of cassis. I've tried this with and without food and it's a proper wine (not confected, manufactured, industrial stuff) with more fruit on the palate than the nose suggested much more blackcurrant and less herbal character, a touch of morello cherry and decent acidity. Not a world beater but at c7.50 a very decent wine.
