Single Vineyard Cabernet Franc 2015

R 159.00

An exquisite vintage of Cabernet Franc


Tasting Notes

Youthful, dark red with perfumed blackcurrants, violets, truffles and graphite on the nose. An elegant, slight mineral character is also present. The wine shows great elegance and softness with fine velvety tannins. Decanting recommended.


Winemaker's Notes

This vineyard is planted in deep, well drained Glenrosa family-type soil, with some clay present. Planted in a North-West row direction, ideal for the warm Wellington area. This young vineyard planted only in 2005 shows great promise with lots of character evident very early. One of the last cultivars to ripen on Doolhof.
