Kaapzicht Bin 3 2000

Veritas 2001 - Silver
John Platter 2001 - 4 Stars
This Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot blend shows a dark, crimson red in the glass. The nose oozes charm. Fruit a plenty – reminiscent of a punnet of juicy, sun ripened berries with a dusting of spice from the oak. The palate is smooth and the delicious fruit flavours mingle with the oak. The tannins are soft and ripe.

A wine to enjoy with barbequed chicken, pork kebabs, pastas, grilled or roasted vegetables and cheese.
