Capaia Cabernet Sauvignon / Merlot 2017

Despite the ongoing drought, the 2017 vintage produced healthy vineyards and smaller berries with good colour and flavour concentration. These conditions, along with the ideal cool weather during harvest time formed the perfect combination for an exceptional quality grape harvest.

The Cabernet Sauvignon is rounded of by the Merlot, adding juicy red fruit flavours to the ripe black fruit flavours with nuances of spice and herbs.

This Bordeaux style blend is well-crafted with firm tannins, enhancing the ageing potential to at least 7 years from vintage.
