Dalla Cia, Classico 2019

The name Giorgio Dalla Cia will always be associated with the iconic Rubicon, the first Bordeaux style blend in South Africa, which earned him the accolade of South Africa’s Champion Winemaker in 1980s and producer of the best red blend in the world in 2006.

As a result, this is a wine producer that is synonymous with progressive thinking and outstanding quality.

A truly great Cabernet Sauvignon with a beautiful, intense ruby colour and notes of plum, oak, blackberry and a hint of spiced cedar-wood.

Matured in 70% new and 30% second filled French oak barrels for 18 months, expect a fine and balanced palate, with a smooth, lingering finish.

This Cab will age with grace…
