Cabernet Sauvignon may be king but he is not the perfect monarch. Bordeaux’s rise to the most classic and renowned wine region was certainly not built on Cabernet alone and for many years even included Shiraz.

Like many monarchs, Cabernet is thick-skinned, providing all the character of colour, tannin and aroma. Cabernet is also versatile, colonising many of the world’s vineyards capable of producing light and elegant through to dark, rich and powerful wines.

Tasting Notes

The ‘King of Reds’.

“The Glen Carlou Cabernet Sauvignon consistently over-delivers on expectation with a great structure and complexity.

This wine has a great structure well supported by the oak. Ripe blackberry and cherry aromas follow through onto the smooth palate framing the mint and dark chocolate flavours. I particularly enjoy working with Cabernet Sauvignon and this is a reflection of a reputable and identifiable Simonsberg Cabernet.
