Lisha Nelson Signature Range Cabernet Franc 2019
“A massively structured and complex Cabernet Franc from the winemaker’s signature Range.”
R480.00 per bottle (South Africa)
If there’s one thing Lisha Nelson knows how to make exceptionally well, it’s Cabernet Franc.
This beautiful wine is soft, rich, and full-bodied with a long lingering finish on the palate.
The deep garnet colour draws you in whilst the aromas are complex with a slight earthiness.
The grapes were hand harvested at optimum phenolic ripeness and underwent strict bunch selection during picking. A second selection was done in the winery with sorting tables.
After fermentation in stainless steel, the wine was racked from the lees and matured in 80% new and 20% second fill French oak barrels for 20 months.
Ideal partner to roast lamb.
Ideal to drink now but will age well for another 10 years.
4.5 Platter Star (90 points)
