Avontuur Legal Eagle Cabernet Franc Reserve 2015

Aroma: Dark cherries, fynbos and peppery rocket aromas jump out of the glass, teasing the senses into taking that first sip. 
flavour: Firm tannins and a balanced acidity, deliver on the promise from the nose and a definite minerality on the finish creates a fascinating wine, which has you coming back for more.

This wine will complement Karoo lamb roast, venison and smoked pork or pair well with oven-roasted flavourful veggie dishes.

Cabernet Franc is one of the classic Bordeaux varieties grown at Avontuur Estate and we share the limelight with our champion thoroughbred in this wine.” Winemaker, Jan van Rooyen
