Spier Seaward Cabernet Sauvignon 2020

Coastal Region, South AfricaFrom the Coastal Region's Groenekloof (Darling), Cape Town and Stellenbosch, and a mix of decomposed granite and weathered shale. After destemming and a stainless ferment, this went into 80% French and 20% American oak (mostly 2nd fill), where it rested for 14 months. The spicy toasted wood is a prevalent backdrop to the cushy black fruit on the tart palate. Tannins pinch this into a shorter finish and call for some protein to help plump it out—a welcome fresher style, compared to old school cab sauv from SA.Tasted: 05 May 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
