South African Cabernets are a lovely mix between new world fruitiness and old world elegance. This is a bold and juicy red wine with red-berry fruit aromas and a touch of oak spice. Classic Cabernet cassis and red-currant fruit flavors with silky tannins and a long finish.
The unique balance of New- and Old-World wine styles is a feature of South Africa and perhaps best reflected in Cabernet Sauvignon based wines. At MAN Family Wines we achieve this style thanks to the excellent grapes from the Agter-Paarl region. The shale soil’s impressive water retention results in concentrated, flavourful grapes. 20% of the wine is matured in oak barrels for 12 months - giving the bold, juicy red berry fruit an elegant touch of oak spice.
Red meats, traditional European cuisine and a variety of rich pasta dishes are perfect companions for the Ou Kalant Cabernet Sauvignon.
