When it’s time to treat yourself, why not open a bottle of the exceptional Steenberg Catharina? This red blend is a masterful fusion of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon with just a splash of Shiraz. The nose is treated to a melange of aromas that are interweaved beautifully: ripe red fruits, aniseed, lavender and dried herb. On the full-bodied palate, anticipate plum, cedar, spice and dried herb flavours. A core of powdery tannins will allow the wine good longevity, so while this wine is drinking well now, it will only get better over the following 5 to 8 years from vintage.
