Why We Love This Wine
Situated above the fertile Franschoek Valley in the heart of the Cape winelands lies this wine farm that is a seamless blend of unspoiled nature, welcoming hospitality, & exquisite facilities with a host of culinary & viticultural delights set among a working wine farm with a 350 year history. As purists, they believe that to produce wine of true character, it is essential that nature should be the primary winemaker. Their farm is blessed with cool breezes during the warm summer months and stony, clay-rich soil giving their wines their unique personality & style. Deep ruby to mulberry in color, this wine has an intense bouquet reminiscent of bell peppers, red berries, spice, & cigar box. It has ample structure that fills the mouth with concentrated fruit and berry sensations.
Winemaker / Tasting Notes
Consistently among South Africa's best wines, this Cabernet Franc is made in a wonderful style with fruit purity & the presence of vivid cassis notes & crushed herbs. Its body is silky & succulent with faint whiffs of graphite aromas.
