Franschhoek Cellar The Churchyard Cabernet Sauvignon

£10.00

SKU: FRANSCELLARCABSAUV

Description

Franschhoek Cellar is a beautiful estate on the Franschhoek Valley wine route of South Africa, and is home to an exquisite range of award-winning wines created to fully complement their cuisine.

The Churchyard is their Cabernet Sauvignon, showing the typical silky, fine tannin structure and prominent black fruit of the region's grapes. Daily pump-overs and punch downs during fermentation, before 8 to 12 months of gentle French oak maturation. 

The result is a wine of great presence and poise, with blackcurrants and violets on the nose followed by concentrated dark berry flavours integrated with tobacco and spice from the savoury oak. Rich mouthfeel and a smooth, juicy, lingering finish. Recommended with hearty stews and casseroles, roast beef, steak or mature hard cheese. 

Winner of Silver at the 2021 Decanter World Wines Awards.
