The Mentors Cabernet Franc 2019


Region: Stellenbosch

Tasting Note:

Those seeking out reds based on Cabernet Franc beyond their French home are, often enough, looking for a red wine which combines something of the structure and command of Cabernet Sauvignon but with more lift, grace and aromatic refinement. It’s dark in colour, with refined, complex, raspberry and root-spice aromas in subtle and uninsistent style. Look out for bright, pure raspberry fruits on the palate with a further twist of liquorice and gentian. The structure comes more from the wine’s quiet, limpid acidity than from any notable tannin presence, further underscoring that accessibility and responsiveness.

Food pairing:

Rare beef cuts with a creamy mushroom sauce and a pinch of black pepper.
