2016 Edgebaston Camino Africana Cabernet Franc

David Finlayson Wines

Stellenbosch

A wine for maturation and enjoyment when the time is truly ripe for the reward.


Vinification

The 5 tons Cab Franc grapes were carefully sorted and crushed whole berry into a 5 ton fermenter.   After 3 days cold soak and allowing spontaneous fermentation to take place, pumpovers occurred 3 times per day for 14 days.  10 days post ferment maceration was followed by a soft press and further 18 months maturation in New 300 litre Allier Hogshead barrels.  Bottled with minimal filtration and no fining to maintain the wines fine structure.
