Description

Varietals: Cabernet Franc 40%, Merlot 35%, Cabernet Sauvignon 25%

This flagship wine from the picturesque 17th Century Huguenot farmhouse L’Ormarins strikes a great balance between power and elegance. All the ripe fruit you’d expect from the Cape is here and ageing for 24 months in small French oak barriques and another 24 months in bottle brings tobacco and cigar box complexity and velvety texture. Expect cassis, menthol and Christmas pudding flavours with generous tannin and a lithe acid backbone to balance the richness.
