Painted Wolf Wines "The Den" Cabernet Sauvignon
A 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, but will continue to improve over the next 3-4 years.
