Winemaker Notes

The Glass Collection Cabernet Sauvignon develops a very complex nose with flavours of blackcurrant, cherry, a touch of spices and chocolate. The wine has a good tannin structure and perfect balance.

Critical Acclaim

ST 90
International Wine Cellar

Bright ruby-red. Aromas of currant, licorice and mint. A sweet, spicy midweight with good energy and definition to its dark berry and licorice flavors. Still a bit tightly coiled. Finishes with dusty, ripe, building tannins.

The creamy mouth delivers more of the same alongside additional elements of cassis, pepper and leathery spice. The mocha-infused finish leaves little else to be desired; drink now.

Pure and sleek, boasting fresh, mouthwatering black currant and black cherry fruit laced with maduro tobacco and mineral notes. This has length and balance, with the minerality lingering nicely. Drink now. 900 cases imported.
