About this Wine
The Painted Wolf The Den Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 is a beautiful embodiment of South African Cabernet Sauvignon, offering a sensory experience that captures the essence of the terroir and the spirit of the African wild dog, our namesake. These Cabernet Sauvignon vines thrive in the Western Cape’s rich soils, basking in plentiful sunlight during the day and cooled by the Atlantic breeze. These conditions yield grapes that deliver the deep, intense flavors and aromas intrinsic to the variety. We adhere to sustainable viticulture practices, ensuring we create wines that not only express the unique characteristics of the region and the variety but also respect the environment. The Painted Wolf winery champions unity and cooperation in every aspect of our operations, akin to a pack of painted wolves.
