Napier Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
"Rich and dense this is a full-bodied, full-octane Cabernet Sauvignon from a single vineyard” - Alison Flemming MW
Napier is a new shooting star on South Africa’s dynamic wine scene. Set against the dramatic backdrop of the Hawequas Mountains, this boutique, family-owned winery has 88 hectares in Wellington, just 70 km to the north-east of Cape Town, and offers a counterpoint to the more well-known areas of Stellenbosch and Paarl. Mountain water and snow melt supplies Napier’s own bore for precision-planned drip irrigation to manage development of each individual varietal, vineyard block and quality level. All work in the vineyards is concentrated on achieving varietal typicité and perfect balance, from the Lion Creek wines for everyday drinking through to Napier’s multiple award-winning icon wine, Red Medallion.
The wine is matured in French oak barrels of different ages for 12 -18 months. This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is deep red in colour with elegant aromas of vanilla and spice from oak maturation as well as blackcurrant, plum and a touch of raisin. The palate is fine with good structure, ripe fruit on the palate, and a long satisfying finish. Enjoy now, this is a good match with roast or grilled red meat.
