If you ever experienced the joy that Cabernet Franc brings, the Cab Franc Festival held annually at Avontuur Wine Estate was the place to be.
This event was held on Saturday, 18th of May, and as always, it did not fail in delivering a memorable event.
21 Wineries represented their wines, from Callan, a young garagiste producing her own style with a bit more fruit than normal, still lovely, to Raats, synonymous with Cab Franc.
Holden Manz (R600/b) was great, and Muldersbosch had a very interesting Cab Franc MCC. However, Ondine was my personal favourite, with Nelson’s Creek and Hillcrest 2nd and 3rd.
The bargain of the day was from Onderkloof @ R80/b, and thrown into the bargain – 91 points from Tim Atkin.
