Experience one of Franschhoek’s bolder red wine gems when you savour Grande Provence Cabernet Sauvignon 2011.
This full-bodied red took root from outstanding Franschhoek vines grown in well-drained, decomposed sandstone soils that are so ideal for the cultivation of Cabernet Sauvignon. Extra care was taken with canopy management to ensure even ripeness and berries of deep colour and concentrated fruit flavours.
The 2011 vintage was oak-matured for 15 months, resulting in smooth, velvety tannins and an elegant, rewarding finish with a touch of mint.
“Our Cabernet Sauvignon boasts upfront red berry aromas on the nose with ripe berry fruit, plum and delicate white pepper notes following through onto the palate. It is perfect to enjoy now, but will also benefit from additional cellaring for three to five years,” says Winemaker Karl Lambour, who recommends this versatile food wine with poultry and red meat dishes.
The Grande Provence Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 sells for R140 at the Grande Provence Tasting Room, and can be found at selected wine shops and fine dining restaurants. For added convenience, this wine can be purchased online from www.grandeprovence.co.za. Purchases of 12 bottles or more qualify for free delivery anywhere in South Africa.
