An Outstanding Wine.

The term 'Cenit' refers to the highest point in the sky and the marketing department has come up with a highly innovative idea – they bottle this wine on the 21st of December which is the longest day of the summer solstice – “the highest point in the sky.” The blend is composed of 60% Cabernet, 30% Malbec, and 10% Petit Verdot. The grapes are hand harvested with careful selection of bunches and berries. It is matured for 18 months in oak. Opaque black purple colour with black purple hue and excellent cling. Perfumed top note of vanilla, violet, confectionary, spice and cassis. The palate is mouthfilling with explosive flavours of cassis, blackcurrant and spice. Fine grained tannins, excellent balance. Very long aftertaste.
