4 ½ Stars 2020 Platter’s South African Wine Guide

Impressive crafting & balance, confirms why Stellenbosch is renowned for cabernet. Intensely perfumed & flavoured, cassis & spice, hint of graphite supported by fine-grained tannins, toned 18 months (as all these reds unless noted) in 45% new oak. 16 (94 pts) has musculature for a long life.

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon has a classic core of black and red fruit tones with blackberries, dark plum cassis and black cherry. Oak and floral spice aromas flutter just underneath a healthy set of fruit expressions. The palate has good focus and structure with the mid-palate still showing a tight grip in youth. With precision and a firm tannic edge on the finish, the full-bodied wine is food-friendly with a long complex lingering finish. 40,000 bottles made.

Winemaker Notes

Complex and stylish, with aromas of ripe blackcurrant, dark chocolate and pencil shavings. This wine is bone dry, yet exhibits a lovely sweet fruit character on the palate, with a lovely long finish
