#137 Stellenrust Barrel Select Cabernet Franc 2014

👃🏼What does time smell like?
This 2014 vintage gives us an opportunity to explore the effects of time on a wine – with partiuclar focus on the changes in aromas.
As for what’s in the bottle, this guys is a powerful, albeit quite tight expression of Stellenbosch fruit.
🔬 This 100% Cabernet Franc is fermented in open-top concrete tanks, before being transferred to stainless steel, where it goes through malolactic conversion. Final blend is then matured in French oak for 18 months. This 2014 vintage is beginning to show some lovely hints of tertiary development, while still maintaining rather fresh red fruit.
As of July 2021, it’s in a great place, but will continue to develop for another 2-3 years at least.

💸 ZAR180 (as of July 2021)
