Avontuur Cabernet Franc 2014

Aroma: Delicious dark chocolate, cherries, aniseed and fynbos aromas jump out of the glass, making this a particularly upfront experience.
Flavour: An elegant wine with soft tannins and a balanced acidity, following  through with dark fruit from the nose and ending off with a lingering mouth feel.

This wine will complement lamb, venison and pork or pair well with oven-roasted flavourful veggie dishes.
