Cabernet Sauvignon makes some of the world’s finest and most age-worthy wines. Medium-bodied (this refers to fullness on the palate) with firm tannins and a lingering aftertaste, this wine is an ideal partner to robust savoury dishes.

Red Sea is the flagship of the Formentera range of wines.
Made from the finest tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, it is a well rounded, sweet wine that has hints of strawberry, plum and vanilla aromas, which are even stronger on the palatte.
It pairs well with goat, lamb and beef. The sweet fruity nature of this wine can also add a burst of flavour to white meats too.
The grapes were sourced from top-performing vineyards situated in the Darling, Stellenbosch and Paarl wine-growing areas. The vines, mostly bush vines grown under dryland conditions, are established in granite, sandstone and shale soils, resulting in grapes with a higher natural acidity and resulting freshness.
Colour Cherry red.
Bouquet Generous aromas of succulent blueberry and juicy red fruit with a subtle hint of oak.
Palate Cinnamon spice and ample lively blue and red berry fruit compote in a tasty, succulent package. Poised and energetic with good frame and balance.
