Winemaker's Notes:

A rich, full bodied wine with lovely fresh, plummy fruit aromas and flavours. Sweetness of fruit balanced well with savoury oak.

David Frost, a Talent for Golf and a Passion for Fine Wine! Frost bought his own 300 acre vineyard in 1994 in the Paarl wine region and with the help of well known Napa winemaker Jason Fisher, produced his first 3,000 cases of Cabernet Sauvignon in 1997. With a focus on quality, not quantity the wine drew quick appreciation including a rating of 90 plus in a recent Wine Spectator review. This encouraged the production of additional varieties. Fermented in stainless steel tanks and matured in small French oak barrels sourced from selected coopers, the David Frost Wine Estate range now comprises an exceptional range of fine, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Par Excellence (traditional red blend) and Shiraz. Taste them, you'll love them all! Read less

Full bodied, low tannin, non-mouth coating wine. Deep/dark in color, almost brown. Mild nose with chocolate notes. The wine is an extremely complex wine that needs to breath before serving. This wine has a little bit to it and for the moderately experienced to expert wine snob.



A rich, full bodied wine with lovely fresh, plummy fruit aromas and flavours. Sweetness of fruit balanced well with savoury oak.
