Pleasure in abundance. Super smooth, silky blend of cab franc (67%) with a seasoning of malbec, cab, merlot. The wine matured for 24 months in 225 and 300L barrels, around a 1/3 new. There’s an assured modernity to an otherwise traditional wine. On the nose is cab franc’s dark, leafy fragrance, hint of tobacco and new leather, before crushed blackberries, plums and winter spice. The 14.5% alcohol is keenly balanced and gives the palate a certain vinosity and freshness. Velvety tannins are offset by a superb, dry finish.

Christian Eedes 94

82% Cabernet Franc, 6% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Malbec and 6% Stellenbosch. Matured for 20 months in barrel, just over 50% new. Red cherry, cranberry and a hint of cassis to go with fresh herbs, rose and pencil shavings while the palate medium bodied and beautifully poised – pure fruit, good freshness and powdery tannins. Shows the elegance that marks so many of the best examples of this vintage. Alc: 13.5%. [Christian Eedes, 08/03/2024]
