Stunning wine! A very rich, appealing nose of black and blueberry aromas and hints of cigar box and tobacco spiciness. The palate is exceptionally full and round, yet precise with a crème de cassis, black currant and Cedar wood of the nose following through with notes of pencil shavings, red capsicum, tea leaf and notes of clove. Grainy tannins and a perfect acidity balance the dark berry fruit on a rich mid-palate, suggesting significant ageing protentional. The finish is smooth and complex with its offering of red liquorice, fennel and exotic spice and an impressive length.

Tim Atkin South Africa Special Report 2020 – “It’s not
easy making Bordeaux blends of this quality in
Franschhoek, but Gottfried Mocke’s cuvée of Cabernet
Sauvignon with 11% Cabernet Franc is a fresh, elegant,
nuanced delight. Granular, refined and easily handling its
80% new wood, this is herbal rather than green with lovely
lift and freshness. 2022-28”
