Avontuur Legal Eagle Cabernet Franc Reserve 2017

Avontuur Legal Eagle Cabernet Franc Reserve 2017

R275,00

The second addition of Avontuur’s Premiére Range Cabernet Franc. By naming the wine Legal Eagle, Avontuur honours one of the great racehorses bred at their Estate, a double Horse of the Year recipient. With this Cabernet Franc they celebrate and share in the limelight of their champion Thoroughbred. Dark cherries, fynbos and peppery rocket aromas jump out of the glass, teasing the senses into taking that first sip. Firm tannins and a balanced acidity, deliver on the promise from the nose and a definite minerality on the finish.
