100% Grenache Noir this is the maiden vintage of this wine. The grapes are from a dry land bush vine vineyard in Piekenierskloof. Franco made this wine for his first born daughter Lua Ilse born in 2019.

More Info

Aleading light of South Africa’s New Wave and champion of old-vine Chenin, among others. From Chris’s cellar in Hemel-en-Aarde Franco has made some serious wines. I mean, these are impressive bottlings by any standard – powerful, concentrated, yet supremely elegant and finely detailed.

FROM THE PRESS

“Made for Louren’s first born daughter. From a Piekenierskloof vineyard of Grenache planted approximately 15 years ago. 25% whole-bunch fermentation and matured for nine months in old oak. The nose shows floral perfume and fynbos before cherry and cranberry plus a little earthiness. The palate is generous without being too rich or heavy – good fruit expression, nice bright acidity and lightly grippy tannins. Alcohol is 14% and there is a slight impression of sweetness but you cannot accuse this of being effete as a few New Wave renditions can tend to be. 92/100”
