Cabernet Franc Chamonix
Top 5% wine in the UK
Blend: 100% Cabernet Franc
From: South Africa, Franschhoek WO
By: Chris Hellinger @ Chamonix
The Chamonix vineyards, some of the highest in the cape, are set within 300 hectares of stunning natural landscape, with herds of game, waterfalls and spectacular views across the Franschboek Valley. The team at Chamonix work hand in hand in nature to create a product which is pure and natural.
The Chamonix estate lies on the lower slopes of the Franschboek mountains, which protects the vines from the Atlantic breezes and the worst of the South African heat. The estate dates back to 1688, when the area was first settled by French Huguenots (who brought their wine knowledge with them). The grapes for the Cabernet Franc are hand picked and aged for eighteen months in old oak barrels.
