Aroma: The wine is prominent Cabernet Sauvignon characteristics of sandalwood, leather and tobacco aromas. These are supported by hints of spice from the Shiraz and a strong blackberry core. Full, juicy red fruits and floral aromas complete the bouquet.

Palate: The Engelbrecht Els 2007 has a medium palate weight with tannins that are showing good integration and length. The Initial mineral impression is followed by juicy plum and black cherry flavours and concludes with a smoky coffee aftertaste.

Impression: “An accessible wine with a rich oak component that will benefit from further maturation, reaching its peak after 6 - 8 years”
