There are very few wards in South Africa that can ripen Cabernet Franc properly like we do in the Banghoek Valley. Overripe and it becomes jammy - under ripe and it becomes herbaceous and vegetal. On Zorgvliet we use a Single Vineyard to create this delicate and harmonious wine. The nose explodes with scents of tobacco leaf, ferns, spearmint, raspberries and blackcurrant leaves. On the palate the tannins are firm and dry and the fruit weight elegant and delicate. The wine has good length and richness right through to the finish. A dryish but lengthy finish.
