    The grapes come from Stellenbosch and are grown only on 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.

    This wine was matured in 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th fill French Oak barrels for 18 months before bottling. 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.

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