2011 Dessert Cabernet
The fruit for this wine was grown on the stony, sandy lower terrace of Askerne Vineyard.
The fruit was hand harvested, sorted then destemmed and crushed. A short fermentation followed which was stopped by the addition of alcohol. The wine was then aged in older French oak barriques for twelve months.
TA 5.15 g/l
Residual sugar 70 g/l
Seductive aromas of chocolate and spice with plum and berry fruit on the nose follow through into the palate which features sweet berry fruit, chocolate and marshmallow flavours supported by a velvety array of cassis and raspberries.
Enjoy this luscious dessert wine on its own or match with strong cheeses or a decadent, dark chocolate based dessert.
