The wine has a brilliant clear ruby red appearance. On the nose, it has notes of fresh berries with subtle spicy nuances. On the palate it is crisp and fruity with a delicious lingering sweetness.
It is a soft and refreshing, easy-drinking wine that, when slightly chilled, is delicious with or without food.
Cellar Cask has been part of the South African scene for twenty-five years. This high quality, excellent value and unpretentious wine is a familiar sight at braais, picnics, beaches, boats and anywhere else people want to relax and unwind.
Driven by innovation, Cellar Cask produced the first “bag-in-a-box” in South Africa in 1979 and this product was immediately snapped up for their sheer convenience and happy informality.
Predominantly, a blend of Shiraz, Merlot & Ruby Cabernet. The Cellar Cask red wines are made from selected vineyards from all regions throughout the Western Cape.
The grapes are harvested during February and March, using both hand and machine harvesting methods. Standard wine making practices: destemming, crushing, temperature controlled fermentation on skins, wine separation, clarification is followed prior to blending & stabilization. A sweet component, with the natural grape sugar, is stored from the vintage and is used for sweetening prior to bottling.
