5 stars in the 2021 Platter Guide. A beautiful wine for the dinner table, even now. More a Margaux to Boekenhoutskloof Stellenbosch’s Pauillac/St Estephe style.
“The Franschoek Cab is jaw-droppingly elemental and granite soaked” I am completely flabbergasted. Make a disorderly queue now!’ Matthew Jukes
FROM THE PRESS
“It’s not easy making Bordeaux blends of this quality in Franschhoek, but Gottfried Mocke’s cuvée of Cabernet Sauvignon with 11% Cabernet Franc is a fresh, elegant, nuanced delight. Granular, refined and easily handling its 80% new wood, this is herbal rather than green with lovely lift and freshness. 2022-28 – 95 Points”Tim Atkin
“Classic, complex 2018 surrounds elegant tannic backbone with stylishly draped blackcurrant, blackberry & warm tar. 80% new French oak adds vanilla & cedar notes, crisp acidity gives measure & pace. Dash cab franc added for freshness & texture, as in also-stellar 2017 5 Stars & 95 Points”Platter’s South African Wine Guide 2021
