Grape - Cabernet Sauvignon 

Where - Tulbagh, South Africa 

What - Martin Smith is Cabernet-obsessed and here we have his flagship, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, Pasarene spectacular! This is the Greta Thunberg of wines; already very, very impressive, but we can't wait to see what it's going to do over time. 


This wine sells OUT quicker than you can even believe. This is the first time it has been 100% Cab Sav and we're pretty much head over heels in love. Martin believes that this is the grape that truly shines in the Tulbagh area and his vineyards prosper under the conditions. 


There's a lot going on in the Marathon 2018 vintage. Flavour-wise, expect freshly roasted coffee beans, blackcurrant, liqourice, ripe cherries, baked figs, slate and stone. You've got big tannins that still remain smooth, a moreish acidity and heaps of juicy freshness. The holy trinity.


If you're impatient, drink now. If you can wait, this wine would do well with up to two decades of ageing.


Stunning, elegant, balanced. Vegan. Low intervention. Organic practicing. ABV 14%.
