The Cape Ruby is a delicious fortified wine with a bright red-purple colour. It has a youthful and vibrant nose with lush cherry, sweet plum and kirsch aromas that follow through on the taste. It is medium bodied and full sweet with beautiful mulling spices and hints of oak that paves the way for supple tannins and ripe dark fruit pastels on the palate.
This wine can be served as an aperitif or partner to decadent self-indulgent desserts. But it partners equally well with mature cheeses, charcuterie or even mildly spiced curries. We suggest you serve it slightly chilled in warmer climates (at 14˚C).
