    Raats Family Cabernet Franc 2019

    R 700.00

    These Cabernet Franc grapes from Stellenbosch are grown only in 100% decomposed dolomite granite soils. This lends itself to great acidity, freshness and an extended mineral finish. Individual vineyard blocks were hand-picked at perfect ripeness and were hand sorted three times before crushing.

    What can you expect?

    The nose entices with its perfume and a garrigue character of Cape fynbos, rosemary, lavender and thyme with spicy notes of nutmeg, cloves and star anise. Intense brooding blackberry fruit, graphite and a streak of minerality add to the complexity of the nose.

    Aging potential?

    This 100% Cabernet Franc will drink even better with time and has an ageing potential of 10 years+.
