Thistle and Weed, Knapsekêrel Cabernet Franc 750ml 2019South Africa, Stellenbosch
'From a biodynamic Cabernet Franc vineyard in the Polkadraai area of Stellenbosch. 50% whole-bunch fermentation. Rose and fresh herbs to go with red and black berries on the nose while the palate shows juicy fruit and fine tannins. Well balanced, this is a very pleasing and accessible take on the variety.' – Christian Eedes, WineMag.co.za, 91/100
'Dried thyme, violet, blackberries and glazed cherry on the nose. Influence of the whole bunch ferment is evident, a light palate, concentrated fruit flavors juxtaposed with chalky tannins. Major aging potential' – Winemaker
Alc: 13.5% | RS: 2.2 g/L | TA: 5.6 g/L | PH: 3.54
About Thistle and Weed:
Thistle and Weed was created in 2015 by Fairview winemaker Stephanie Wiid and Delheim viticulturist Etienne Terblanche. These Young Gunners first burst onto the scene with their maiden-release 2016 Thistle & Weed Duwweltjie Chenin Blanc which garnered a Platter’s 5 star. They produce artisan wines, focusing primarily on Chenin Blanc, and their grapes are sourced from organic and responsibly farmed vineyards from different parts of the Cape.
