MENU’s Wine of the Week is Tanagra Cabernet Franc 2015

We were gifted this bottle of when we stayed at Tanagra wine farm in McGregor during this year’s Wacky Wine Weekend. We took it home and had it with two meals, Pea, Lentil and Ham Hock Soup and a Lasagne that Lynne made.  It was superb with both and is a really versatile food wine. It does not dominate food, just compliments it.
Perfumed with cassis and cherry, it is fruity with soft tannins and great depth.  Black cherry and mulberry flavours entice with dark wood notes on the end. A very good wine with food. R140 a bottle on the farm, well priced for this quality. Made by Lourens van der Westhuizen from Tanagra’s grapes
