Korlat Cabernet sauvignon
Korlat Cabernet Sauvignon has a distinctly dark, deep, almost black colour with a characteristic purple sheen. In the aromatic profile, it is characterized by a richness of various aromas such as plums, blueberries, black currants, and discreet spicy notes. The wine is full, harmonious, with concentrated aromas, slightly more pronounced freshness with a lot of mature tannins. With careful long-term care in oak barrels, it is paired with a unique wine for selected moments.
