Cape Winemakers Guild

Engelbrecht Els CWG 2006

60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Shiraz, 10% Merlot The concept is to produce a wine made up of three different varieties that reflect the unique diversity of the Stellenbosch terroir. The different cultivars each lend their individuality to the blend – Cabernet Sauvignon gives structure and aging potential; Shiraz adds spice and palate weight and Merlot allows for integration. Tasting note: Bright deep ruby. Bouquet: the complex aroma of this delicious wine is dominated by the red berry flavours and supported by some cedar, vanilla spice from the barrels. The cumin spice, almond and candy floss complement the aroma of the wine. Palate: the aroma of red berries and plum follows through onto the palate. Dark chocolate, mocha and fruit cake fruit flavours enchant the mid-palate, complemented by a spicy oak finish. The elegant tannin structure ensures a juicy mouthfeel.
