Following the introduction of its first three moderately priced table wines in April 2013, Plaga will launch its latest label – Cabernet Sauvignon.
Like its very successful antecedents – Plaga Sauvignon Blanc, Plaga Chardonnay and Plaga Rose – Plaga Cabernet Sauvignon, the first red wine in the Plaga range, is made from imported grapes that are fermented in Bali. This process provides a response to Indonesia’s onerous tax levies on imported wines and spirits that allow an affordable and highly palatable wine to be sold on the local market.
Touted as “bold, fruity and powerful” Plaga Cabernet Sauvignon is produced from Western Australian grapes.
Tasting Notes: Plaga Cabernet Sauvignon
Bold, fruity and powerful, with a ruby-red color reminiscent of young Italian wines. A complex aroma blends red fruits such as berries and plums, with hints of black pepper and spices. Oak aging introduces memories of vanilla and coffee. Young, fruity and soft on the palate, a delicate wine with good structure and a taste that is fresh, round and well balanced. A friendly wine with a long pleasant finish.
Inexpensive by local standards in Bali, Plaga Cabernet Sauvignon hits the market on July 8, 2013, at Rp. 129,000 (US$12.90) per bottle.
