Steenberg Stately 2018
Deep red color with bright garnet red around the rim. The aromas of black currant, cassis, raspberry and pepper first seduce you. A medium-bodied wine, it is elegant and has firm tannins, yet a smooth mouthfeel and depth. The finish is lingering with notes of jasmine, plum and ground spices. The main Cabernet Sauvignon has a nice tannic structure and long aging potential, while the Shiraz adds fresh fruit, blendable, earthy, and spicy notes. This is a wine that can be enjoyed now, but will also age well in the next five years.

Founded in 1682, it is the oldest winery in the Cape region. Steenberg is located in the cool Constantia Valley between Cape Town and Table Mountain, about 30 minutes outside of Cape Town. Steenberg means a mountain of stones, and in fact there is a rocky mountain nearby, and the complex terroir has produced numerous award-winning wines, including the representative Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, and bubbles. The owner has changed frequently since the first Catalina Ross, but in 2005 Graham Beck, the leading sparkling maker in South Africa, became the owner and continues to this day. A five-star luxury spa hotel, a luxury private villa, a golf course, and two restaurants are also located on the winery grounds with a wonderful view, making it a winery loved by celebrities around the world.
