Boekenhoutskloof Franschhoek Cabernet Sauvignon 2020

14.5% abv

Vol- 75cl

Made from selected parcels of Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards planted on the north-western
facing slopes of the Helderberg mountain and south-eastern facing slope of the Polkadraai Hills. These
parcels of excellent Cabernet Sauvignon grow on a combination of deep decomposed granite soils with Table
Mountain sandstone and “koffieklip”. The mild maritime influences from the cool False Bay coast and
granitic soils are evident in this wine’s hallmark minerality and classic graphite-like profile.
The 2020 vintage is characterised by the long ripening period, which extended the harvest well into April.
The cooler night temperatures towards the end of February and few heatwaves meant longer hang times,
allowing further fruit flavour development without sacrificing freshness and acidity. These conditions
certainly influenced the final wine, which shows classic Cabernet Sauvignon freshness and a typical grainy
tannin structure.
The 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon is our 6th Stellenbosch vintage. This wine’s ever-increasing quality is evident
in that we have gained a greater understanding of the Stellenbosch vineyards and terroir. The 2019 vintage
was again vinified entirely at Boekenhoutskloof in tulip-shaped concrete tanks with élevage on our OXOline
2 system. The changes in vinification and élevage significantly impacted the style, resulting in a more refined
claret-like structure with dark fruits and graphite.

Boekenhoutskloof was established in 1776. Located in the furthest corner of the beautiful Franschhoek valley, the farm’s name means “ravine of the Boekenhout” (pronounced Book-n-Howed). Boekenhout is an indigenous Cape Beech tree greatly prized for furniture making.

In 1993 the farm and homestead was bought and restored and a new vineyard planting programme was established that now includes Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Grenache, Semillon and Viognier.
