Elegant and fine, complex and fruity, with small hints of gooseberry! This wine is a real surprise, with an exciting zesty body. The bouquet of the wine is Cape Floral driven with a tropical distinction. Due to the high natural acidity of the fruit the style is mineral driven, cool and precise on the surface, with a lot of dreams below.
The Cabernet Sauvignon "Garnet´s special"
A wonderful balanced wine with ripe tannins and a long, layered finish. It has a brilliant purple colour - like a Garnet - a sweet nose of blackberries and hints of cherry.
The Goose Expression „Fall in love and jump!“
Grapes of intense fruit, balance and elegant structure result in a soft but strong experience of nature on the tongue. Blackberry, pepper, leather and a unique tannin structure.
