In 2013, two winemakers – Elgin Ridge’s Brian Smith and Luddite Wines‘ Niels Verburg – were having a beer. They were chatting about their shared love of Cabernet Franc and one suddenly said “So, why don’t we make some”
It was one of those spur of the moment decisions that quickly evolved into an exciting and unique winemaking journey with the not-so-insignificant goal of creating the best Cabernet Franc in South Africa and today, 4 years on, they’re ready to release their first vintage.
“the 2014 Cabernet Franc” is being revealed for the very first time at an exclusive trade preview at Marble in Johannesburg today and at Ellerman House in Cape Town tomorrow. Befitting of its caliber and exclusivity, the 2014 Cabernet Franc will be showcased against Château Mouton Rothschild 2013 and Château Margaux 2013 at both events.
Only 900 bottles were produced and quantities are strictly limited. For enquiries, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
