We ululate with joy at having this in stock once again! Exuding rich mocha aromas with red fruit & cherry. The palate shows distinct characters of coffee & chocolate, which is balanced with smooth velvetytannins & a lingering after taste.
Cabernet Franc is like a HD High Definition version of Cabernet Sauvignon. Tighter, more defined, structure and intensity (but not fruit) at 11 rather than 10 ( Spinal Tap reference...!). Rather like Spinal Tap, you need a Camberwell Carrot to really 'dig' the complexity of this wine...
Deep and concentrated on the nose, it opens up on the palate to reveal crisp cassis fruit with smoky edges and a hint of green pepper all hung on a ripe firm structure. Excellent balance. Excellent wine.
Aptly named the 'Cape Doctor' south easterly wind - this wine has benefited from cool coastal breezes which are clearly reflected in its delicate yet intense nature!
