Steenberg Catharina/Principe De Viana 1423 Reserva

Description:

Steenberg Catharina
Intensity and complexity, evoking the aromas of many of life’s pleasures: biltong and cigar, coffee and dark chocolate, fruitcake and Ceylon tea. Layers of concentrated red and black fruit (raspberry, blackcurrant and black cherry) show on both the nose and the palate, accented with spicy pepper from the Syrah. Herbal notes from the Merlot lend a refreshing finish, while Petit Verdot rounds out the blend, adding structure and depth. Dark fruit and spice, subtle acidity and a strong tannic backbone create the optimal pairing for a traditional beef Wellington. Will bottle age well for 7 to 10 years after bottling.

Principe De Viana 1423 Reserva
Deep cherry-red colour, clear and bright. A big, complex wine thanks to a broad array of aromas of blackcurrants and plums with subtle pipe tobacco and chocolate notes. Highly attractive, intense and long. Equally full and delicate, balanced and velvety palate. The elegance and appeal of this wine lies on a wellintegrated wood on a base of fruit flavours. A full palate with a lingering finish.
