Domaine Boekenhoutskloof – Cabernet sauvignon – Franschhoek valley – South of Africa – 2006
The chosen musical chord of the same vintage highlights the beauty of the wine, corresponding to the three common invariable parameters defined in the two universes following the Wine4Melomanes concept: sensuality, vivacity and melody. These parameters result from the organic dynamic equation of the geology of the terroir, the climate and the vines growing there, the know-how of the winegrower to reveal the alchemy of aromas and flavors precisely combined.
This great wine of the southern hemisphere from a sandy terroir in the granitic basement, the cossu flask adorned with its astonishing sticker with seven printed chairs, routs of the scent of black fruits to the agitation of its glossy, dark and deep robe. With oxygenation, the graphite, the licorice, the dark chocolate, the cedar wood, the cigar box spice up our envy to the tasting. (94% cabernet sauvignon, 6% cabernet franc)
The setting in the mouth is shooting, powerful and enveloping: the perennial and sensual freshness draws a fine masculinity haute-couture for this nectar near CapTown. Powerful!
