Painted Wolf The Den Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Painted Wolf The Den Cabernet SauvignonA medium to full bodied wine with typical Cab flavours of black current, brambly fruit, cigar box augmented by toasty oak. The wine has a lovely rich texture, soft ripe tannins with a long fruit driven finish.

Cabernet Sauvignon is harvested from a vineyard in the Botteleray region of Stellenbosch. We have blended 10% Swartland merlot from Kasteelsig vineyard and 4% Shiraz sourced from out three partner vineyards

This wine was made from ripe grapes picked to deliver a rich flavour. Cabernet fermented in tank on a blend of French oak staves, and then completed malolactic and maturation on staves; the wine was finished off with 10% Swartland Merlot and 4% Shiraz, both of which were matured in a mixture of new and older oak barrels.

This wine is good now, and will continue to improve over the next 3-4 years.
