Boekenhoutskloof Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Notify me when this product is available:

  • Made from selected parcels of Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards planted on the north-western facing slopes of the Helderberg mountain and south-eastern facing slope of the Polkadraai Hills. These parcels of excellent Cabernet Sauvignon grow on a combination of deep decomposed granite soils with Table Mountain sandstone and "koffieklip". The mild maritime influences from the cool False Bay coast and granitic soils are evident in this wine's hallmark minerality and classic graphite-like profile. 

    The vintage is characterized by the long ripening period, which extended the harvest well into April. The cooler night temperatures towards the end of February and few heatwaves meant longer hang times, allowing further fruit flavour development without sacrificing freshness and acidity. These conditions certainly influenced the final wine, which shows classic Cabernet Sauvignon freshness and a typical grainy tannin structure. This wine's ever-increasing quality is evident in that we have gained a greater understanding of the Stellenbosch vineyards and terroir.
