A deep ruby red colour, with notes of blackcurrant, tealeaves and vanilla spice on the nice, which follows through to the palate. A well balanced structure with fresh acidity and dry appetizing finish. This wine will keep developing in the bottle for the next 7-10 years. Chill it down for a refreshing summer drink with seafood or serve at room temperature with meat or Italian style dishes.

The 2017 Kadette Cape Blend comprises 37% Pinotage, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc, matured for 12 to 14 months in French Nevers oak barrels. The bright, animated bouquet of black plums and crushed violets demonstrates commendable purity for an entry-level wine. The palate is sweet on the entry, offering black plum, white pepper, clove and touches of sour cherry and finishing with good definition. Fine. - Neal Martin
