This Cape Red is made from 100% Ruby Cabernet, a cross between Cabernet Sauvignon and Carignan, which is common in South Africa. This gives it a surprisingly broad smell and taste. The grape originated in California and found its way to South Africa in the 1980s. In just under forty years, this grape has made an advance in this wine country. The high yield, the perfect terroir and the fruity character ensure that winegrowers are crazy about this special grape. The Cape Red is deep red in color. Notes of black cherries, blackberries and spices on the nose. Smooth and mild in taste.

Located in the Western Cape, South Africa's Mountain Ridge is surrounded by endless vineyards, hills and mountains, and is also a true Valhalla for wine lovers. Mountain Ridge stands for accessibility. friendliness and quality at a perfect price. Wines that are good for any time, any time and any season. After the harvest, the grapes are pressed immediately. Then they are fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve freshness. Delicious aperitif wine and a great accompaniment to salads and meat dishes
