Named after one of winemaker Callan Williams' favourite musicians, Bruce Springsteen, Bruce Cabernet Franc is made from grapes from the Elgin Valley in the Overberg region of South Africa. The wine is 100% open fermented and then matured for twelve months in 2nd-fill French oak barrels. Bottled at 15%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Dark red fruits, cassis and plums, hints of spice.

Palate: On entry very fruit driven plums and blackberries in particular. Mid-palate hints of black tea.

Finish: Well integrated tannin structure, giving a soft and supple texture with lingering notes of plums.

One of 2017's "Young Guns of Wine" in South Africa, Zimbabwean-born Callan Williams swapped a career as a ballet dancer for an even bigger love for wine. After a stint as assistant winemaker at Iona, she set up on her own label called The Garajeest in 2014, with her debut 2015 vintages released in February 2017.
