2018 Cape Chamonix Cabernet Franc

Cape Chamonix


On release the Cabernet Franc shows a deep ruby mulberry colour and intense bouquet with scents reminiscent of bell pepper, red berries, spice and cigar box. A wine of ample structure fills the mouth with concentrated fruit and berry sensations.


At harvest the grapes undergo berry-selection on sorting tables before the whole berries are fermented in stainless steel and concrete tanks for 3 weeks. After malolactic fermentation the wine matures for 18 months in 228ℓ French oak barrels.
