Excelsior Wine Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
This delicious, crowd pleasing Cabernet—consistently named a Wine Enthusiast "Best Buy"—delivers serious bang for the buck! It's packed with lip smacking flavors of blackcurrant, black cherry, and plum, with subtle hints of dark chocolate and spice. Blackberries, leather and cigar box spice unfold on the nose, while flavors of lush black plum, cherry, prosciutto and mochalead through to the long finish. A terrific value Cab that's a great choice for company.
The picturesque Robertson Valley is nestled between two rugged mountain ranges near the Breede ("Broad") River. It was here that the De Wet family purchased a large tract of land in 1859, subsequently channeling the river and planting the region’s first vineyards. Today the estate is owned by Freddie and Peter De Wet, the fourth and fifth generation of De Wets to farm the property. Robertson’s limestone-rich clay soils are ideal for quality wine production, and Excelsior boasts over 200 hectares planted to noble grape varietals, with a focus on Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, and Shiraz.
