Stellenbosch, South Africa
100% Cabernet Franc
The grapes were handpicked in the early hours of the morning from selected vineyards on the Helshoogte and Helderberg Mountain.
Characterised by typical dry conditions and moderate temperatures, favourable conditions continued throughout the season. Yet despite smaller berries and lighter crop stemming from the windy conditions
grapes showed good acidity and balanced sugar delivering well concentrated and structured wines.
The grapes were gently pressed, fermented for almost 3 weeks at 14˚C and then left on primary lees post fermentation. The wine is made in the same style as Sauvignon Blanc from vineyards to cellar to
maintain the lovely fresh fruit characters.
Residual Sugar: 3.30 g/1
