Dry Red Table Wine

750 ML


Product Description

The Shepherds Cottage at Overgaauw was originally built in the late 1700s to house the local Shepherd. It is a small quaint humble home, with thick old white washed walls and small windows which are protected by green shutters, each with a heart carved out in its center. The wine is 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot offering structure with rich black berry and perfumed flavors. The merlot adds ripe juicy black cherry truffle flavors with hints of violets. A voluptuous, juicy, generous, smooth textured wine, with fine ripe tannins.

Region Description:

The town of Stellenbosch was founded in 1679. It is a European settlement in the Western Cape Province, South Africa. The town became known as the "City of Oaks" due to the large number of oak trees that were planted by the founder. The region is equipped with dark alluvial clay soils, a Mediterranean climate, and hilly slopes that keep the hot afternoon sun at bay. Summers in Stellenbosch are dry and warm while the winters are cool and rainy. The most planted grape of the region is Chenin Blanc. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cinaut are the two red grapes planted in Stellenbosch.
