2017 THISTLE AND WEED Knapsekerel (Stellenbosch, South Africa)
Style - Spicy
Grapes - Cabernet Franc
Tasting - A bright, light and energetic red in the glass it shows notes of graphite and capsicum, thyme and rose geranium. The fruits are blackberries and glazed cherry which are nicely distinctive with the whole bunch fermentation to partly thank.
FYI: The wine is named after the perennially opportunistic Knapsekêrel (Blackjack) plant which gambles its reproduction by spreading its seeds on wind, water, man and beast.
