MORE INFORMATION:
Cabernet Franc vines planted in decomposed sandstone soil North of the Langeberg mountain in the Langeberg Garcia Ward. East to west row direction ensures that the sun rises and sets over the vine canopy keeping the berries mostly in the shade of the leaves during the day. These sandstone soils allow excess water to drain quickly however a layer of ferricrete and clay keeps the roots of the vine cool and provides the necessary moisture to produce quality grapes.
