You have probably heard us bang on time and time again about how South Africa is one of the most exciting and great value places to buy wine from and we hope by now we’ve proved that, but if you needed just a bottle or two more convincing then we’ve just the ticket for you!
Enter exhibit one: Nomad Wines Cabernet Franc 2019. A collaboration between Pieter Kruger (SA born, partly London based wine buyer) and Kosie van der Merwe (winemaker at the much lauded Elgin Ridge), this delivers everything you could possibly want from Cabernet Franc and more. Juicy blackberry and cherry fruit is backed by this incredible varietal violet and graphite character that is more readily found in top notch versions from the Loire. Add to that an energy and vibrancy that is utterly charming and we were hooked!
