Aslina Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Aslina Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Ntsiki Biyela, Winemaker

Only about 250 cases are produced of this rich and complex Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend.

Cabernet and a small percentage of Petit Verdot grapes are hand-harvested from sustainable and fair trade vineyards in the wine-growing region of Stellenbosch, renowned for the production of extraordinary quality, robust, and fruit-forward wines.

 The wine is aged in a combination of first, second, and third-pass oak barrels for up to 16 months. The aromas are bold and profound with elements of cigar box, ripe red fruit and a piquant, herbaceous mint. On the palate the wine is full-bodied with chewy tannins.
