Painted Wolf Cabernet is organically a certified Cabernet, It’s produced from grapes that were sourced from the Kasteelsig vineyard which is owned by Painted Wolf Pack members Billy (Guillermo) and Penny Hughes. The site is primarily red Glenrosa soil with some Oakleaf, both shale-rich duplex soils, and the vines are not irrigated. Kasteelsig supplies grapes for some of South Africans top boutique wines.
The Painted Wolf Cabernet is a classy medium to full-bodied wine with typical Cab flavours of black currant, brambly fruit, cigar box augmented by toasty oak. The wine has a lovely rich mid-mouth texture, a long, fruit-driven finish with fresh acid and ripe tannins.
