Zorgvliet Winery’s Cabernet Sauvignon epitomizes the estate’s dedication to crafting exceptional wines. Celebrated for its bold character and rich flavors, this varietal ascends to new heights under Zorgvliet’s skilled winemakers.

Transitioning to Stellenbosch’s heart, Zorgvliet’s Cabernet Sauvignon captures the terroir’s essence. Nestled in the Banghoek Valley, vineyards at 300-350 meters elevation face mostly south, ensuring moderate temperatures for slow grape ripening. The soil, a blend of leached, decomposed granite, and sandstone, is integral. Gravel aids drainage, while clay in the subsoil retains moisture.

Introducing itself with a deep, ruby-red color, the wine’s aroma harmoniously blends blackcurrants, plums, and subtle cedar and tobacco hints. On the palate, complexity unfolds. Ripe black fruit with integrated tannins offers structure and depth. Full-bodied, vibrant acidity achieves a seamless, lingering finish.

Zorgvliet Winery employs traditional and modern winemaking techniques. The selective use of oak barrels imparts complexity, revealing vanilla and spice nuances that enhance the overall tasting experience.

The vineyards’ soil composition, characterized by decomposed granite and sandstone, imparts distinctive mineral notes. This terroir-driven approach, coupled with winemakers’ dedication to sustainability, results in a Cabernet Sauvignon reflecting vintage nuances and Zorgvliet’s timeless winemaking essence.

Whether enjoyed young or aged, Zorgvliet’s Cabernet Sauvignon offers a vinous journey through Stellenbosch, encapsulating passion, expertise, and terroir. Enthusiasts are invited to savor the legacy in every sip.
