The Avontuur Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot is an award-winning wine, scooping up a gold medal for its 2013 vintage at the Vitis Vinifera Awards. This deep plum-coloured wine is teeming with dark cherry and raw almond nut aromas on the nose, followed by a minty hint that is a derivative of the Cabernet Sauvignon portion. The palate is medium to full in body and delivers ample juicy berry flavours alongside a structure of tannins that will boost this wine’s ageablity. The presence of wood is beautifully incorporated and the aftertaste satisfyingly persistent.
