The Anthonij Rupert Wines Protea Cabernet Sauvignon is a wine full of contrasts.
The nose is greeted by blackcurrant leaf and fruit cake, with a delicate dash of spice.
Your sense of taste is tempted by rich cocoa and earthy notes that support appetising blackberry and ripe cassis flavours. The wine is velvety and soft in texture, yet is balanced by a powerful punch and good concentration. Though smooth and graceful, it shows pleasing structure. Each sip ends in a finish that is lengthy and suggests coffee.
