The Co-operative South African Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 www.co-operative.coop
So yesterday enjoyed a fantastic Smooth red (from the Co Op again) - on the Smooth Jazz Show with Rod Lucas. Check out http://bsj.fm
Am a great fan of South African wines, this one is so reasonably priced in Co Op for £4.79. and we both felt it was smooth and well rounded but still fruity and distinctly blackcurranty. Not too heavy. I would've thought it'd be a good partner for meaty pasta dishes, again with some cheese sprinkled.
A real treat, would definitely drink it again, I do feel you can't go far wrong with a South African and am looking forward to the rose version in due course. The grapes below are Cabernet Sauvignon grapes (just for interest, I'd wondered if they looked much different from Merlot or Syrah grapes, I guess they probably do, so watch this space and we'll discover together over the next few posts . . . .)
