Cabernet Franc

Cabernet Francis a parent of Cabernet Sauvignon.

A cross of it with Sauvignon Blanc resulted in Cabernet Sauvignon. Cabernet Franc tends to be softer and has less tannins than Cabernet Sauvignon, although the two can be difficult to distinguish. Many of the red wines of the Loire are primarily Cabernet Franc.

Chamonix, Cabernet Franc, Franschhoek, 2018

New winemaker Niel Bruwer has upped the game at Chamonix: this is brilliant. Fabulous floral perfume, tinged with tobacco, pepper and leather. A big wine, given 18 months in barrel, but still elegant; jellied raspberry and blackcurrant flavours; silky, expansive and with plenty of freshness. Finishes with a cinnamon and cocoa flourish.

Our favourite wine merchant never fails to delight. Delicious wines at every price point - including a few gems below £10 in our favourites list. We’ve really enjoyed the sun case as an easy way to be introduced to new wines which we’ve then reordered. Friendly informative service completes the package.
