Kaapzicht Bin 3 2012

Kaapzicht Bin 3 2012

Interesting herbaceous profile, showing earthy, crushed leaf components and even agave, but without any green, bitter elements. The palate is broad, with red fruited accessibility, and the property’s signature structure and firm tannins. Medium bodied.

Serve with your favourite pizza / pasta.
