Stark-Conde Three Pines, Cabernet Sauvignon, Stellenbosch 2011

Modern, vibrant and vivacious. But also classical and true to its Stellenbosch roots. Great florality (jasmine and violets), polish and presence here with ripe creamy cassis and coffee notes on the palate. The Cabernet fruit is grown on decomposed granite from the Jonkershoek Valley and winemaker Jose Conde’s expert fruit handling means that the silky tannins and violet notes really stand out and sing. This wine is all about elegance, freshness, pleasure and refinement. A genuine class act and a joy to drink now and for the next ten years.
