Wine tasting notes

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon is our 5th Stellnebosch vintage. This wine's ever-increasing quality is evident in that we have gained a greater understanding of the Stellenbosch vineyards and terroir. 2018 was vinified entirely at Boekenhoutskloof in tulip-shaped concrete tanks with élevage on our OXOline 2 system. The changes in vinification and élevage had a significant impact on the Cabernet's style, resulting in a more refined claret like structure with dark fruits and graphite.

Expert reviews

Platter's South African Wine Guide (2018) - 5 stars

“Rich, ripe black berries & cherries on pronounced & perfumed 2018. Warm texture lifted by attractive herbal whiffs (5% cab franc making presence felt), 70% new French oak - up from 60% in 2017 (4.5 stars, 94 pts) - works to good effect, taming sturdy tannins & adding spicy interest. From 5 parcels in Helderberg & Faure.”


Tim Atkin (2018) - 96 pts

“It’s surely no coincidence that Boekenhoutskloof moved into its swanky new cellar in 2018, as the quality of most of its wines has gone up a notch. This comes from two excellent growers on the Helderberg and is wonderfully focused, layered and complex with some underlying grip, blackcurrant leaf top notes and some seasoning from 5% Cabernet Franc. 2022-30”
