Zonnebloem Cabernet Sauvignon 1984
By Christian Eedes, 13 December 2013
Yesterday over lunch a magmum of Zonnebloem Cabernet Sauvignon 1984 supplied by Anel Grobler and Jan Laubscher of Spitorswallow.co.za and Winetimes.co.za. Not particularly carefully stored by their own admission, it was brilliant even so.
Still extraordinarily primary, still plenty of shape and form. The assertion is often made that proper winemaking only began here in 1994 (I’m as guilty as anybody in this regard) but this wine proves the contrary.
