Raka Quinary South Africa Bottle 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review: A Bordeaux -style blend comprising Cabernet Sauvignon (54%) Merlot (27%), Cabernet Franc (9%) Malbec (6%) and Petit Verdot (4%). The wine has been aged in 225-litre French oak barriques and displays a complex array of flavours on the nose including cassis, plum and tobacco. Tannins are quite ripe and the acidity balanced, lending the wine a pleasing approachability in youth, although it will repay ageing for a further 5 years. (Alun Griffiths MW, BBR Buyer)
