Waterford Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

The 2013 vintage expresses a softer, yet more concentrated aroma of dark fruit, pencil shavings and earthy tones, and the palate offers more velvety tannins compared to the 2012. This wine still ever consistant to the Helderberg terroir providing richly structured wines with good acidity. The wine is classically driven by a tight and dry structure allowing for good aging potential of at least 8 to 13 years.
