5 Stars 2021 Platter’s South African Wine Guide
Named for big-wave spot off Hout Bay. 17 ***** (95 pts) exemplary Stellenbosch cab; full-flavoured glossy fruit with herbal edge, supple tannins, long finish-latent power for decade’s ageing. More assured than 16 (92 pts). Wild ferment, 18 months 30% new barrique.
Big, bold and brave. This can be said for the man who paddles out at death-defying Dungeons. It can
also be said about our Cabernet Sauvignon. From the backline; a sweeping view across Hout Bay and
the back of our beloved Table Mountain could distract one from the thundering walls of water. But not for long, this
wave deserves ones full attention, as does this wine. Hand crafted and made up of grapes from uniquevineyards around the Stellenbosch region, it shows ripe blackberry and plum flavours, rounded off by cedar and subtle oak notes.
