Cape Chamonix Rouge

South Africa | 2015

£13.95 a bottle

The Cape Chamonix Rouge shows a deep ruby colour with garnet highlights on the rim. The generous bouquet suggests blackcurrant, cedar with scents reminiscent of red berries, spices and vanilla. The wine is amply structured; full, round and smooth on the palate with rich fruit and length of flavour. An elegant wine that will mature with time in the bottle.
