Notes

'Using grapes from two of Bruwer Raats’ best (and highest) blocks, both of which face south, this is a very dense, muscular, sinewy Cabernet Franc that has an appealing combination of old vine concentration, herbal, lead pencil aromas and well judged spicy oak. 2019-25.' – Tim Atkin MW, 2017 SA Special Report, 93/100

Vineyard block:
Soil type: 100% Decomposed Dolomite Granite. Age of vines: 18 - 25 years. Trellised vines and no irrigation. All from Stellenbosch and grown only on decomposed dolomite granite, which gives a great acidity and freshness to the wine and adds minerality to the finish. The individual vineyard blocks are each hand-picked at perfect ripeness during the last week in February till the first week in March.
