Damascene W.O Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon 2021

R552.00

Region: Stellenbosch

Tasting note:

“A rich opening salvo of cherry, blackcurrant pastille, thyme, eucalyptus, and deeper notes of fennel. The palate offers an exceptionally fresh interpretation of the grape, managing to be both concentrated and structured, while maintaining a rare elegance. Notes of cassis, black cherry, and graphite, alongside nuances of roasted plum, are lifted by intense, juicy, black cherry fruit. The finish is decisively savoury, with a retro-aromatic encore of fennel and dried thyme.” – Winemaker

“The 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon is matured in 50% new oak for the first year and 2,000 oval Austrian foudre in the second year. This is more cohesive and fresher than the 2022 Cabernet Franc tasted alongside with blackberry, cedar and graphite aromas. The palate is vibrant on the entry, well-balanced with pliant tannins, taut and linear before fanning out with impressive precision on the finish. This would give a top Bordeaux a run for its money. Definitely a level-up on the previous vintage.” – Neal Martin, Vinous
