This Cabernet Sauvignon offers ripe fruit, cherries and oak spice that follow from nose to palace. Delicious with a hearty Sunday roast of beef or lamb with gravy.
The Peter Barlow pays tribute to the man who had the foresight to purchase Rustenberg in the 1940s and invest in making it the icon it is today. No expense is spared in the making of this wine: it is sourced from hand-harvested Cabernet Sauvignon from acclaimed vineyards on the slopes of the Simonsberg mountain in Stellenbosch, and aged for 24 months in French oak. It exhibits an abundance of cassis and blackcurrant, with hints of cedar and cigar box, plenty of body and a structured backbone of fine-grained tannins. Patient cellaring of this wine will be rewarded.

The Painted Wolf is also known as the African Wild Dog or Painted Dog - a highly social animal, each with its own ornate markings. The den is at the heart of the pack, a place where Painted Wolves relax and bond. The Den Cabernet Sauvignon is classy, full-bodied and balanced - a social win to enjoy with family, friends and good food.
As you "paint your palate" with this wine you are making a contribution to the conservation of this rare and endangered animal.
