Platter's South African Wine Guide
SA classic from prime terroir, built for 10+ years. Liquorice, cedar & fresh herb overlay to pure cassis fruit, precise acid & fine-boned tannin, tightly focused exemplar of this wine's signature elegance, harmony, latent power. All-new oak, 18 months, like standout 2017.
Compact and dark red fruited, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Jonkershoek Valley offers cassis, blackberry and spiced plum notions in the glass. Medium to full-bodied, the wine offers soft hints of herbs, graphite, pencil lead and dark cherry skin before notions of violets sway across the mid-palate with a firm tannic edge. It’s still tight and youthful and will benefit from an additional year in bottle; however, the wine should drink particularly well for the next 12 years.
