‘I love the lightness of touch of Stephanie Wild's winemaking, immediately apparent in this Cabernet Franc from granite soils in the Polkadraai Hills. Fermented with 15% whole bunches, this partners violet and green salad aromas with graceful tannins and layers of summer berry and black cherry flavours. Wonderfully elegant. 2024-30’ – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2023, 95/100

‘From Polkadraai Hills grapes. 15% whole-bunch fermentation. Matured in stainless steel tank and bottled early on account of the wine from this vintage being so immediately open. Inviting aromatics of rose, fresh herbs including just the right amount of mint, orange, plums, black cherry and a hint of earth. The palate is light bodied with pure fruit, fresh acidity and powdery tannins. Delicate and poised, this is a delight.’ – Christian Eedes,, 93/100

‘Perfumed nose with cranberries and dried thyme. The palate shows freshness with concentrated fruit flavours of plum and blackberries juxtaposed with chalky tannins. Major aging potential.’ – Winemaker

Producer information 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.
