Awards, Reviews and other Notes

93 pts Tim Atkin MW 2017
This top-of-the range Cape blend is a tribute to the eponymous Frans and is a cuvée of Pinotage with Cabernet Sauvignon and a splash of Merlot. Serious, spicy and plush, with firmish tannins, sweet oak and considerable backbone to support the fruit sweetness. 2020-30



Winemaker Notes

The wine displays a dense opaque colour with a perfume entrance of rich plums, vanilla pod and a dash of cigar box. These three varieties unite and form a powerful trio of concentrated black berry fruit. The tannins are soft and supple and the refined dry finish captures the characteristics of this Cape Style blend, leaving lingering notes of sweet plum and cedar oak.
