Notes

'Two sites on granite supply the grapes for this elegant, floral, easy-going Cabernet Franc, aged in older wood to allow the fruit to sing. Pure and very true to the variety, with violet and green herb notes and crunchy, black cherry fruit. 2017-21.' – Tim Atkin, 2017 SA Special Report , 92/100

Vineyard block:
Soil type: 100% Decomposed Dolomite Granite. Age of vines: 7 - 20 years. The grapes come from Stellenbosch and are grown only on decomposed dolomite granite soils. This lends itself to great acidity, freshness and an extended mineral finish.
