Coterie of Wildeberg Cabernet Franc Malbec 2018

Coastal Region, South AfricaThe Wildeberg way is sourcing exceptional fruit in Franschhoek and the Coastal Region. From these highly regarded sites, another selection makes up The Coterie. This delicious mix of cabernet franc and malbec is fermented for 20 months yielding dense sweet tannins that bolster the mouthfeel of this impressive red. Black plums and red cherries are all dusted with a light savoury, peppery spice. The mix is 67/33 cabernet franc/malbec that you can hold for two to three years or drink now with lamb chops, meaty pasta dishes, and soft cheeses. The Wildeberg ethos is minimal intervention winemaking, wild ferments, and coarse filtration to expose the site in all its glory. Finally, a high quality label from South Africa makes it to the BCLS stores via English negociant and fine wine purveyor Boutinot.Tasted: 21 May 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 24.99 BCLS Producer: WildbergBlend: Cabernet Franc - Malbec CSPC: 106319UPC: 6009900252421
