The Liberator, New Blood & Chocolate Cabernet Sauvignon-Shiraz, Coastal Region, South Africa 2020
(at Edinburgh, 26 Mar 2022)
Drinking Window: 2022 - 2023
South African wine specialist and Master of Wine Richard Kelley sourced this Cape blend from Glen Carlou. It does exactly what is says on the can – sweet milk chocolate and vanilla, plus concentrated blackberry and raspberry jam. It’s no gimmick though; there’s enough ripe tannins to stand up to rump steak too.
