Tasting Notes

Michelangelo 2006 - Double Gold
Rich and complex with layers of ripe black cherry, smoky spice and vanilla; muscular with well honed tannins lending depth and structure to a satisfying core of ripe fruit; well integrated oak treatment with a lovely dry finish - Elsie Pels-Cape Wine Master.

Ageing Potential

Can be enjoyed now for the fresh vibrant fruit. Cellaring for 2 – 4 years will reward you well with secondary flavours and more complexity.
