Cabernet Sauvignon is our most popular wine: this ou kalant (old rascal) remains a firm favourite, outfoxing the others by combining New World ripe fruit flavours with Old World elegance and charm.
This classic cabernet is our best-selling wine. Superbly balanced, MAN Cabernet Sauvignon captures both Old World silky tannins and New World ripe fruit, and completes it with a beautiful, long finish.
From the winemaker:
The unique balance of New- and Old-World wine styles is a feature of South Africa and perhaps best reflected in Cabernet Sauvignon based wines. At MAN Family Wines we achieve this style thanks to the excellent grapes from the Agter-Paarl region. The shale soil's impressive water retention results in concentrated, flavourful grapes. 20% of the wine is matured in oak barrels for 12 months - giving the bold, juicy red berry fruit an elegant touch of oak spice. Pairing:
Red meats, traditional European cuisine and a variety of rich pasta dishes are perfect companions for the Ou Kalant Cabernet Sauvignon.
