About the wine
Social wines to be enjoyed with friends and family, these wines are named for the den, the heart of all painted wolf communities. Flavour-packed, soft and juicy comfort wines.
A crowd-pleasing medium-bodied wine with typical Cab flavours of red and black berries and cigar box with a touch of toasty oak. The wine has a lovely rich mid-mouth texture and a long, fruit-driven finish with fresh acid and firm tannins which will soften with a little bottle age.
Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from the Botteleray area of Stellenbosch, Agter Paarl and Swartland.
