With similar fortitude and endurance that finds synergy with our Shiraz, Franschhoek’s well preserved original station building is reminiscent of the work of the lauded British architect, Sir Herbert Baker. The charming building follows Cape Dutch revival lines with its unmistakable gable and form.
Deep ruby with notes of mulberry, plum, pepper and modest oak spice. The palate shows soft ripe tannins that provide a well structured and balanced juicy finish along with generous length.
Service and Cellaring Best served at between 16°C and 18°C as a great match to spicy sausages, smoked meats, roast venison, duck confit or mature cheddar or blue veined cheese. Full-bodied and generous for delicious drinking immediately with the structure to last well for up to 5 years in the bottle.
