Tasting Notes

Veritas 2001 - Silver
John Platter 2001 - 4 Stars
This Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot blend shows a dark, crimson red in the glass. The nose oozes charm. Fruit a plenty – reminiscent of a punnet of juicy, sun ripened berries with a dusting of spice from the oak. The palate is smooth and the delicious fruit flavours mingle with the oak. The tannins are soft and ripe.

Ageing Potential

Although drinking well already, the wine should hold for another 4 to 5 years.
