Pronounced (“Cab-err-nay fronk”), is produced in a variety of countries including the USA, Chile, Italy and more notably France in both the Loire Valley and Bordeaux. The most famous of course belonging to Chateau Cheval Blanc in St Emillion, France.
At Môreson, we have always been fascinated by this cultivar producing our first vintage in 2006 with a mere 3 barrels of wine.
Together with Sauvignon blanc, it is the parent to Cabernet Sauvignon. When grown correctly, it produces wines that can only be described as possessing a combination of strawberry, violet, dusty gravel, roasted red pepper and crushed black pepper. It is a medium bodied red wine with feminine, silky tannins.
Here at Môreson, we only collaborate with producers who are exclusively grape growers and do not produce their own wine. For 10 years, we have worked closely with our grower isolating a few rows of the 2.8 hectare vineyard to tailor-make the product before you. The vineyards are grown on iron rich granite based soils, scattered with flakes of quartzite. Soils such as these produce elegant wines packed with richness. Of paramount importance to us at Môreson, is working with fruit that is of Franschhoek origin and producing wines that are not only single vineyard and single site, but express the true nature of our beautiful Franschhoek Valley.
Matured in 300L French oak barrels for 18 months, and produced from one of the finest Cape vintages we have experienced this is a wine produced with integrity and soul.
