Tasting Notes

In a blind scribble I had written down 'controlled opulence'. On reflection I can see why I did, in the glass and on the nose this Cab conjures a broodiness, filled with dark seductive notes of brambly undergrowth, black cherries, plum and mulberries, perfumed with a glistening vibrancy. The most incredible length too, excellent. 

More Info

The team behind Boekenhoutskloof is no less than a super group. With award-winning winemaker, Gottfried Mocke heading up a formidable new cellar, South Africa's best farmer Callie Louw in charge of vineyards and Marc Kent leading the charge, Boekenhoutskloof couldn't be in any better hands. They are truly one of the Cape's highest performing and most consistent estates.

FROM THE PRESS

“Gottfried Mocke sources this Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon from two growers - one on the Helderberg, the other in Stellenbosch Kloof - to produce what is always the denser than its companion Franschhoek bottling. Inky and grippy, with top notes of menthol, mocha and dried herbs, lots of energy and vibrancy and a core of plum, blueberry and cassis. 2025-35”
95pts Tim Atkin MW
“The 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Stellenbosch contains no Cabernet Franc. It is matured 60% in new French barriques for 22 months. This is more compact on the nose than the Franschhoek bottling with darker fruit, perhaps a little more Old World inspired. The palate is medium bodied with fine tannins, crips and focused. IT’s edgier than the Franschhoek cuvee, full of energy with a focused, graphite-infused finish lingering long in the mouth. Excellent. ”
