Marlbrook
 1997

Grown on the 18th Century Marlbrook title of Klein Constantia Estate, this is a classic Bordeaux-style blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and cabernet franc.

Tasting Notes

This elegant Cabernet-Merlot blend has complex layers of perfumed violets, cinnamon, cedar & plum. On the palate there are powerful flavours of ripe berry fruit, black cherries and hints of eucalyptus. Soft, velvety tannins offer good structure. The lingering, integrated finish is rich in ripe berry fruit with a touch of spice.
