Hook and Ford

Cabernet Sauvignon, Waterford Estate 2013

£22.99 £26.99

A delicious and sumptuous example of what can be done with Cabernet Sauvignon in South Africa, and particularly Stellenbosch in this case.

This is soft and full of ripe fruit yet it also has some of the more complex and sophisticated Cabernet notes: leather, cassis, cedar. Being so rich, this will last very well in the cellar so you could drink it now or in the next 5-7 years.

I would pair this with its typical partner - red meat.

Or, if you want to try something really interesting go for dark chocolate with a little sprinkle of sea salt.

Jancis Robinson says, 

"Very Cabernet nose and juicy and very finely handled tannins. Sweet but not simple. Very appetising and gentle. Dry finish but not drying." 17/20
