Complex and intriguing Cabernet Franc from Franschhoek, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon was added. Natural fermentation on large wooden tanks. The wine aged for 24 months in 50% new French oak, was bottled unfiltered and bottle-aged for 3 years before release. Bright floral notes of cherry blossom and violet mingle with dark fruit, pencil shavings, cedar and spice aromatics. A plush entry to the palate with succulent plum and black cherry, dusted with spice. Refined, poised and structured, the oak frames the fruit well and also plays with the rich cocoa and cedar nuances. Complex and silky with a lingering finish. Cellaring potential of 10+ years.

Food pairing:
Serve with the best of red meat, beef, venison and lamb.
