About this wine

The Stellenbosch Reserve Ou Hoofgebou is a true showstopper of a wine. Named after an iconic university building in Stellenbosch, Ou Hoofgebou Cabernet Sauvignon is a classic example of a Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon.  Expressive dark fruit on the nose, showing ripe aromas of cassis, black cherry and Christmas cake, with savoury notes of toast and sandalwood.  The bold fruit creates a juicy and textured mouthfeel, with mouth-coating tannin that is fine yet grippy, with an elegant raspberry freshness. Balance is provided by savoury notes of cigar box.

The Building: Ou Hoofgebou

The Ou Hoofgebou was built to house the Stellenbosch College, which later became Stellenbosch University. After construction of other college buildings, the original building was referred to as the Ou Hoofgebou (Old
Main Building). Now home to the Faculty of Law, the Ou Hoofgebou is a stately landmark in the campus landscape. Considered the King of red varieties, the Cabernet Sauvignon matches the Ou Hoofgebou in bearing
with its regal flavours and powerful tannins.

Alcohol: 14.22% ABV

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."
