Comparisons have to be made with the best Bordeaux can offer when considering red wines such as these. From a vineyard overlooking False Bay in the Stellenbosch wine region comes a 100 per cent cabernet sauvignon named after the “Cape Doctor” the south-easterly wind that keeps the sea-facing slopes cool during the summer months. Lush, ripe and fruity with soft tannins and hints of spice, you don’t need a doctor’s note to appreciate this.
