Awards and Reviews:
“2014 Cape Grace Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is impeccably styled, with beautiful balance and line through the palate. “I really like this.” Said McKenzie. “Violets on the nose. Rich ripe blackcurrant flavours with good acidity.” I found red fruit fragrances too, and a good fruit/oak balance. There’s plenty of fine, firm tannin. Enjoy it now or cellar.” Nick Bulleid MW

“Might impressive follow-up to the very good 2013. I reckon this one just shades that wine. It’s a limited production number that’s been given the kid gloves treatment in the winery, with hand plunging and basket pressing. Scented notes of heady blackcurrant and cedary with a palate that is deep concentrated black currants. Grainy tannins and well-weighted oak. Yep, you can drink it now, but really, give it time and you’ll see what a marvellous wine this will become. 96 points
