Spier Seaward Cabernet Sauvignon

Spier Seaward Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Western Cape, South AfricaWe were impressed with 2017, and 2018 is as good or better. Spier strives for fruit purity in its wines, never an easy task at this price point, but they seem to pull it off with aplomb. Nothing is pressing about this wine. It simply measured clean and balanced and as good as it gets for less than $20 from this grape variety. It's more European than New World, with less fat and oak, and more style and elegance. Look for moderate amounts of blackcurrant and black cherries, with a dusting of cedar and oak. It is ready to drink and perfect with any barbecued meat, stir fry, or pizza.Tasted: 31 December 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 19.99 BCLS Select Producer: SpierDistributors: Whitehall Premium Wines & Spirits
