Stellenrust Cabernet Franc Rose 2007

Stellenrust Cabernet Franc Rose 2007

A deep pink colour with lots of strawberries and blackcurrents on the nose, but a greener palate with strong floral flavours. This is definitely not a Rosé for the faint hearted. 2007 shows the maiden vintage of a wine made with skill and technique learnt in the Southern parts of France. This then being the only Cabernet Franc Rosé from South Africa and also one in its class.
