 Wine Storage



Loads of wonderfully ripe black fruits are interspersed with roasting spices in the aromatics of the 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve. This broad, deep, medium-bodied wine is crammed with flavors reminiscent of candied dark berries, asphalt, mint, and spices. Its long, seamless finish exhibits copious quantities of fine, supple tannin.’ Pierre Rovani, Wine Advocate 89/100 (2005)

A 2004 review of the first five vintages of this bastion of classical elegance yielded 97 & 01 as favourites, worthy of cellar space. Current O2 (4*), reflecting the vagaries of a lighter harvest, is easier, for drinking while 01 – still a concentrated sleeper evolves & grows.’ – Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2006, 4*
