Nederburg Private Bin Two Centuries Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Alluring and effortless, this Cabernet from a stellar vintage impresses with its silky texture, restrained ripe black plum and cassis berry notes as well as its superb equilibrium of fruit, integrated oak and acidity. Harmonious, structured, classical and refined, the layered, svelte mouthful lingers long.
Additional: Complexity and class or refinement is masked, making this Cabernet from the fabled 2017 vintage appear deceptively simple and easy. It slips down like a thief in the night! It is velvety, silky smooth in texture with abundant beautifully – perfectly! – ripe black berried fruit, subtle sprinkling of spice, touch of tobacco leaf and cigar box from oak maturation. There are layers and strata to this poised wine. Nothing is overplayed. It’s elegant, statuesque, refined, restrained and simultaneously generous, rich and full yet pliant and supple. The aftertaste lingers long, leaving haunting echoes of flavour memory.
