Miles Mossop, Introduction Red 2019

This wine is a blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cinsault, 17% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet franc from specially selected vineyard sites around the Stellenbosch region.

Stunning depth of colour with an intense garnet hue. The aromas emanating from the glass are reminiscent of red and black bramble fruit with hints of cedar and tobacco.

The palate has flavours of dark fruit, dried italian herbs and notes of five spice. Full and rich with a textured dry finish.

    “A homage to the Cape red blends of old, The Introduction is Cabernet Sauvignon-led with 47% Cinsault, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, aged in older oak. Fresh, yet serious with cassis, pomegranate and red berry flavours and nuanced, granular tannins.”
