Excellent wine, excellent setting with passion – Eikendal Wine Estate
My last wine for 2017 is the Cabernet Sauvignon 2015. This was an exceptional year in Stellenbosch.
The Eikendal Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 received top honours with a Double Gold status. Tim Atkin gave this wine 93/100 points in his recent 2107 South Africa Special Report. Platters also gave it a 4 ½ stars.
No stone was left unturned to create this quality! – Nico Grobler – Winemaker.
I had a very special day out in the vineyard with him a few months ago. Read more about it Here:

A lot of care, passion and long hours went into producing this exceptional estate classic. Nuances of cracked pepper, pencil shavings and a fresh meat character combined with firm day tannins, refreshing acidity and well-judged wood treatment. The wine is well balanced with a lingering savoury and red-fruited finish.
Enjoy with good food and company, or just on its own.
