I’ve been really enjoying being able to try so many South African wines through The Wine Gallery recently. This The TC Wine Club pick is a 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon from Paarl made by The Painted Wolf Wines Pack.
These minimal intervention winemakers have had their wines served in business class on South African Airlines and they also support a good cause:
“As you ‘paint your palate’ with this wine, you are making a contribution to the conservation of this rare and endangered animal.” – being the South African wild dog.
In the glass this South African Cab is a ruby red shade with a toasty nose full of black currants, herbs and a hint of caramel. Juicy fruits come through on the palate, balanced tannins (dryness), a hint of tobacco and a good fruity acidic finish. Pass over the luxury steak and blue cheese sandwich please!
All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy! #winesample #tcweekdaywine
