‘Grapes from Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge. 20% whole-bunch fermentation before maturation lasting 11 months in older 228-litre barrels. Red and black berries, intense musk, mushroom, herbs and spice on the nose while the palate has good fruit weight, bright acidity and some light grip to the finish. Forceful and direct, alcohol is 13.6%.’ – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 92/100

‘The 2022 Pinot Noir displays bright hues of plum and ruby. A classically medium bodied wine with complex aromas and flavours of raspberry, pomegranate, cherry and hints of mushroom, forest floor and spice. Beautifully balanced on an enduring finish.’ – Winemaker

Producer information Francis Wines was established in 2023 by Burton Francis, a former professional rugby union player, he played locally from 2008 to 2013, then moved to France to continue his rugby career until his injury in 2017. During this time is when he fell in love with the Burgundian winemaking style and the methods, he completed his MBA in Wine & Spirits Business at the Burgundy School of Business and has now produced wine under his own label Francis Wines. Soil analogy is key to Burton’s vision, therefore creating a Burgundy-style wine in his home country, Hemel-and-Aarde was the perfect place for him to start his journey. His maiden release are his Chardonnay, which wine critic Christian Eedes best describes as ‘pure and powerful’ and his Pinot Noir which Christian boasts is ‘forceful and direct’.
