VAN BILJON CINQ 2014
The Van Biljon Cinq has an exotic deep ruby colour.
On nose this superb wine shows dark chocolate and dark berry fruit aromas complimented by classic French Oak characters.
On palate the wine is essentially fruit driven showing layers of cassis, cranberry and cherry flavours complimented by cigar box aromas from the oak. The vibrant berry acidity is complimented by firm tannins with a lingering aftertaste. The richness, texture and concentration of this outstanding wine makes it an excellent match with well matured red meats, duck, risotto and rich cheeses.
• The wine has good maturation potential and will drink best between 7 and 12 years old.
2014 : 4 and a half stars in the 2017 Platter’s Wine Guide.
