Gabriëlskloof Landscape Series Cabernet Franc 2021


Blackberries, liquorice and cloves form part of a perfumed vintage that is alive with a fresh herbaceousness that recalls bouquet garni. That almond husk texture to the tannins is again present on the palate, adding a savoury counterpoint to brighter, red-fruited notes. Elegant and coiled, promising plenty more to offer over time.

The Landscape Series from Gabriëlskloof was created from a desire to incorporate the best of Gabriëlskloof vineyards with some of South Africa’s old vine treasures. It celebrates provenance, together with an appreciation for the hills and dales of the majestic Overberg.

The Landscape Series is a range of five wines that show the best of Gabriëlskloof’s vineyards, together with some special old vine treasures, and aims to give an honest representation of the elements that make them unique. We wanted the labels to reflect this approach and commissioned Niël Jonker – well-known for his landscape panels painted on location – to capture the spirit of our Overberg landscapes.

The 19-year-old vineyard is situated on a rocky mountainside site on the Gabriëlskloof property. The soil combines Overberg Shale and Table Mountain Sandstone.
