Wine High Road, Classique, 2015
Reviews of purchase High Road, Classique, 2015
The wine is a deep ruby color with a transparent red rim.
The taste of wine is incredibly soft, creamy, but not without structure. The tones of black berries, vanilla and oak layered on top of each other, forming a complex composition with full, ripe tannins. The sharp hints of pepper in the aftertaste create intrigue and tension, while the confrontation between fruit and wood shades continues.
Seductive shades of blueberries, currants and plums in the aroma of wine are complicated by hints of graphite, dried Mediterranean herbs, vanilla and pepper.
Wine can be enjoyed on your own or with your favorite meat dish.
Wine High Road, Classique, 2015 is a bizarre paradox: it is gracefully soft, multi-layered, deep, round and persistent. Classic French grape varieties Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot were grown in low-yielding areas of South Africa, getting their own unique sound. Thanks to the controlled use of French barrels during the year of aging, a balance was achieved between acidity, tannins and alcohol. So, Classique wine has a structure that allows for a long time to maintain the richness of taste. You can enjoy it on your own or with your favorite dish. This wonderful wine will become more and more fascinating with age, opening up more and more new faces.
