Free Delivery with Orders over £95
The Stellenbosch Reserve Ou Hoofgebou Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep ruby hue, showing lovely underlying dark fruit and cedar notes on the nose backed up by hints of cigar box and lead pencil, creating a beautifully intriguing aroma. Savoury, dark fruit notes define the palate, with a wonderful dark chocolate/mocha character that gives the complexity associated with a fine Cabernet Sauvignon from Stellenbosch. This wine has nicely integrated firm tannins and a grippy structure which leads into a long, lingering velvety finish.
