Ou Hoofegebou 2013, The Stellenbosch Reserve

£17.99 per bottle

About this wine

A true showstopper of a wine. Named after an iconic university building in Stellenbosch, Ou Hoofgebou Cabernet Sauvignon is one of Fronter’s big finds this year. With restraint, purity and tannin structure of the very highest order, indeed more akin to Château Montrose in St-Estèphe than a Stellenbosch red, this is an edge of your seat wine with a classical personality. Pure cassis and cigar box, tobacco-like notes combine with beautiful delineation and density. A deft touch keeps the wine in dramatically elegant proportion yet at the same time the fine-grained, intense and ripe tannins lend exceptional structure. 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."
