Awards & accolades

86 points Wine Advocate

3 stars, 80 points – Platter 2020

Tasting Notes: A crowd pleasing medium to full-bodied wine with typical Cab flavours of red and black berries and cigar box augmented by toasty oak. The wine has a lovely rich mid-mouth texture, a long, fruit-driven finish with fresh acid and evident tannins which will soften with a little bottle age.

The story of this wine: The den wines are social wines to be enjoyed with friends and family. These wines are named for the den, the heart of all African wild dog communities. Flavour-packed, soft and juicy comfort wines for every day drinking.

Jenny Metelerkamp produced a fine Painted Wolf ink drawing for the label.

Food suggestions: Excellent with a large variety of dishes, especially steaks, chops, home-made burgers, sticky roast pork belly and lasagne.

The vineyard:Cabernet Sauvignon is mostly sourced from the Bottleray area of Stellenbosch, Agter Paarl and Swartland.

Winemaking:Fermented with Bordeaux yeast strains in tank with French oak staves, and then completed malolactic fermentation and maturation on staves for 4 months.

Ageing Potential: This wine will continue to age for and can be drunk up to four years from vintage.
