Lanzerac, established in 1692, is one of the oldest wine farms in the Cape. This Left Bank Blend (In reference to Bordeaux!) is made from 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Malbec, 3% Petit Verdot and 1% Merlot. It was matured in a combination of new and 2nd fill 300 litre French oak barrels for a period of 20 months. The 4 varietals were individually fermented and matured before careful blending and bottling.
This full-bodied Cabernet-based blend announces vanilla and nutmeg spice before a flood of dark berries, cooked plums and blackcurrants assail the palate. Dark chocolate and hints of smoke is supported by sturdy smooth tannins and an endless finish. Enjoy this wine with an herb and pepper crusted rib of beef, braised lamb shoulder with fennel and orange, or a chocolate-based dessert!
