*Please note - the image may not reflect the current vintage
Backsberg Patriarch Cabernet Franc is a bright and vibrant ruby with cherry tonality in appearance. Expect typical dry, tea-leaf Cabernet Franc notes, gooseberry, dusty cedar, blackcurrant, plum and violets on the nose. Laden with flavours of pencil shavings and raspberry with maturation. Expect a clean, dry finish, this wine will reward further cellaring. (Cellaring potential 10 to 20 years)
These Cabernet Franc grapes are grown on the slopes of the Helderberg Mountain where the vines are nourished by abundant sunlight, rich weathered granite soils and cool False Bay sea breezes that funnel in through the valley. The vines are slow to ripen, encouraging flavour development and ideal varietal character. Hand-picked, the grapes are destemmed and sorted prior to fermentation in small inert open fermenters at 25 degrees Celsius with a cap punch-down four times daily for 10 days. The wine is then matured in both first (15% of the blend) and second fill French oak post malolactic fermentation for 12 months.
