Ou Hoofegebou 2015, The Stellenbosch Reserve

£19.25 per bottle

About this wine

The Ou Hoofgebou is a true showstopper of a wine. Named after an iconic university building in Stellenbosch, Ou Hoofgebou Cabernet Sauvignon is one of Fronter’s favourite reds.  On the nose this wine shows pure dark fruit, aniseed and pine straw notes backed up by a herbaceous profile together with notes of cigar box and lead pencil to create complexity.  On the palate the dark ripe fruit and savory notes show beautifully with an intense burst of juicy fruit and subtle aniseed undertone creating an intriguing finish. This wine has long full tannins that balance the medium acidity to create a classic Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon.  At this price, this has to be in the top three Cabernet Sauvignons available in our list. Try it – it’s a very special wine indeed.

    string(589) "One of the most ubiquitous grape varieties in the world; Cabernet Sauvignon. Together with Pinot Noir it vies for the crown of greatest red variety in the world. So multifaceted and so adaptable, it is as happy in the Pauillac vineyards of Château Latour as it is in the high altitude vineyards of the Andes. So suited to oak and with a firm tannic backbone, it is very often utilised as part of a blend. Though Bordeaux is its natural home, it has spread through the wine world, finding notable homes in Stellenbosch, Coonawarra, Langhorne Creek and the Barossa Valley to name but a few."
