Case of Steenberg Five Lives Red Blend
Steenberg Five Lives expresses an intense dark red hue with a lighter, garnet red on the rim. The nose displays prominently with blackcurrant cassis and notes of earth, basil and plum. It is a medium to full-bodied wine, showing a silky texture and depth, as well as an elegant tannin structure. Savoury sundried tomato pesto, tobacco spice, cherry and cinnamon notes linger on the palate long after the last sip.
The Merlot forms the backbone of this wine with clean, bright fruit which add subtle freshness. The Cabernet Sauvignon brings a formal, earnest profile to the blend.
This wine is showing beautifully now and will reward cellaring for up to 5 years.
76% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Sauvignon.
