The Good Hope Cabernet Merlot Oceanside is produced by Jacques De Klerk in the village of Helderberg in Stellenbosch – SA. The Winery of Good Hope was founded in 1998. They believe in combining innovation with a healthy respect for tradition. In other words, their approach is old plus new, and the best of both worlds.
Mature trellised vineyards, grown in a rocky, Ferricrete (known locally as Koffieklip) produce this attractively styled blend. Both varieties are grown on a South East facing slope, overlooking False Bay with the ocean’s edge some 4km away. As the name implies, the site is perfectly poised to take advantage of the South Easterly winds that moderate daytime temperatures by bringing cool air in from over the sea during the long hot summer months.
The Good Hope Cabernet Merlot Oceanside is a characterful blend of classic varieties with aromas of blueberries fynbos. On the palate, the wine expresses beautiful fruit concentration with a long, savoury finish.
