Cabernet Sauvignon 'The Churchyard'
Franschhoek' s original cemetery is the final resting place of the original Huguenot families until the turn of the 20th century. The legacy of our ancestors endures on the engraved tombstones. Our Cabernet Sauvignon symbolises longevity and evolution with stealth and structure to preserve Franschhoek's secrets and stories.

A wine with a great presence and poise, according to winemaker Ryan Puttick, this Cabernet Sauvignon shows blackcurrants and violets on the nose, followed by concentrated dark berry flavours integrated with tobacco and spice from savoury oak, a rich mouthfeel, and a smooth and juicy-lingering finish.
The vineyards were planted on particular soil types to allow for the optimum vine growth balance. The silky, fine tannin structure and prominent black fruit are typical of Franschhoek.
