Stellenbosch Reserve Vanderstel 2017
The 2016 is garnet with a purple edge, elegantly textured and medium in body. It offers a blaze of fine red berries, creamy oak and savoury complexity. The palate offers hints of mint, dried mushrooms and glazed cherries, finishing with cured meat and vanilla notes. It is a majority Cabernet Sauvignon, providing cassis notes and a serious backbone to the more generous Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Overall, a fine balance of freshness, glossy fruit and earthy undertones. It drinks well now, but will age well for a decade.
