Tasting Notes:

Ripe strawberries, invites one into the glass. A mixture of red and black berries awaits with a whiff of pencil shavings promising a great wine. Ripe red cherries at first with spices in the background. Delicate notes of oak and pencil shavings with cassis and red fruit completes the rich palate. Gripping tannins on the mid palate with lingering ripe fruit and great balance on the after taste.

Normandie EST. 1693 is one of the original twenty nine French Huguenot-settled farms in the Franschhoek region of the Cape Winelands. Our privileged location on the mid slopes of the majestic Groot Drakenstein Mountain peak is twenty-eight kilometres from the Atlantic Ocean. Set in a unique microclimate of hot days and cool nights, sixteen of our forty eight hectares are planted to vine with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot grape varieties.

Our vineyards are surrounded by fresh springwater streams running down from the mountains, irrigating the clay layer in the sub soil and creating a perfect medium that acts as a buffer during the summer heat to protect the vines. Well drained colluvium (a mix of sand, sandstone, quartz stones and rocks) lies above the clay layer and is ideal for flourishing vines. The topsoil is made up of the unique weathered Table Mountain sandstone. The well-drained soil on the farm enables our vines to have exactly the sought after moderate vigour that is the basis for our exceptional wines.

Small French Oak barrel maturation for 12 months. Further ageing took place in bottle for 24 months prior to release.
