Excelsior Heritage Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2021

Western Cape

The quality of wines coming from South Africa has never been better. The FT described them as "gorgeous, often underpriced". This is a fabulous, darkly spiced red - a rich, Reserve Cabernet made from the pick of the grapes. Dense cassis and plum.

Critic Jancis Robinson MW was impressed by "the great strides that have been taken in red wine quality" in South Africa. After a tasting, she wrote, "Most of the reds I encountered were really delicious — with fine examples of Cabernet Sauvignon". This ace red is from the De Wet winery in Robertson. It's a 19th-century family estate with extensive plantings of Cabernet (nearly half their vineyards) and count themselves specialists of this grape. For the Heritage Reserve, winemaker Johann Stemmet searched out the finest, lowest-yield grapes from the limestone soils of this great region. Ageing nearly half the wine in French and American oak has lent a rich layer of spice to the dense notes of cassis. Open early and get the steak sizzling.
