2016 CABERNET FRANC, Chamonix. Franschhoek, South Africa
Alcohol Percentage: 14%
Area: Franschhoek is a great town for tourists but has only recently started making great wine, as producers look beyond the valley floor to the less fertile hillsides
Grape Variety: 100% Cabernet Franc, matured for 18 months in French oak (only a tiny proportion of new oak)
Producer: This was the last vintage produced by Gottfried Mocke, the alarmingly talented winemaker at Chamonix (now moved on) who took the brand from average to excellent in a very short time. Chamonix was the SA winery of the year in the important 'John Platter Guide' for 2013
Old Bridge Rating: Exciting example of fresh, lively Cabernet Franc - not heavy or powerful at all
