Lievland Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Region: Paarl
Winery: Lievland Vineyards
Grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon Blend
Vintage: 2017
Label   Shelf Talker   Fact Sheet

Description: A combination of high-altitude cooler Stellenbosch vineyards and dryland warm climate Paarl vines resulting in a balanced wine with complexity and abundance of fruit. The Stellenbosch fruit adds structure and elegance to the wine while the grapes from Paarl add riper dark fruit and richness. Hints of pencil shavings, blueberries and prunes are all evident on the nose, while the palate boasts of dark fruit with juicy tannins and an elegant finish. Aiming to craft a more traditional style of Cabernet, a small percentage of Cinsault was added contributing vibrant fruit expression and balance to this well-rounded and classic Cabernet Sauvignon.
