2018 Cabernet Sauvignon, Boekenhoutskloof, Franschhoek

The Franschhoek Cabernet Sauvignon comes from four different sites, including some coming on stream from the estate itself. It’s a wonderfully exuberant yet pure expression of Cabernet, that’s one of the Cape’s finest. A little Cabernet Franc makes it into the blend, too, which gives a touch of floral character.

2018 Cabernet Sauvignon, Boekenhoutskloof, Franschhoek
Boekenhoutskloof

Based in Franschhoek since 1776, Boekenhoutskloof is one of South Africa’s most feted wineries. After some years in the wilderness, the current operation was started by a group including winemaker Marc Kent in 1993 – they quickly put themselves on the map, making some of South Africa’s most expressive wines. Indeed, many would call Boekenhoutskloof the vanguard of South Africa’s new wave movement. Now it’s Gottfried Mocke at the helm, arguably South Africa’s most talented winemaker, and the wines have never been better.
