axr cabernet sauvignon 2016
The growing season of 2016 was a beautiful one with hot and dry weather minus extreme heat spikes which often leave a 'fingerprint' on a vintage. This gave us the freedom to pick when we were ready and we saw an incredibly balanced wine result from it.
on the rim: deep, shiny ruby with touches of magenta and Ferrari red
one the nose: beautiful aromatic nose with touches of flowers such as lilac, violet and fruit such as blueberry reduction, cotton candy, rose candy, cassis jelly, apricot jam and watermelon gum
on the palate: fresh, fruity entrance, evolving on a aromatic mid-palate lingering on fresh fruit and granular tannins with touches of boysenberries, red currant, pomegranate and grapefruit
