The nose shows ripe blue berries, cherries and some tobacco. These flavours carry forward to a palate filled with cedar tobacco spice, herbs and sweet and sour berries with a refreshing acidity

Description
BlendPercent100% Cabernet Franc
CellarGrapes are crushed and allowed to cold soak for 1 day. It is fermented in open concrete tanks with regular punch downs of the cap for 7 days and finishes malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The wine is then matured in small 225 litre French oak barrels for 18 months.
FoodSuggestAlways good with Karoo lamb or beef, but its elegance allows it to be enjoyed with nothing but great company.
HarvestGrapes are picked at optimal ripeness in strict accordance with the vintage. In some cases, 24 Balling may be ultimate ripeness - in other vintages it may be awfully green. So, not only keeping the vineyards close to our hearts but also picking at optimal physiological ripeness allow us to capture the wide array of flavours this elegant grape produces.
VarietyCabernet Franc
VineyardThe vines used for this wine are from 20 year old trellised vineyards with a South Eastern slope on our Helderberg property grown in coffeestone.
