This wine is really impressive. It’s from a Franschhoek winery I was introduced to through a friend (the brother of owner and winemaker Kevin Swart), who also make wines under the Black Elephant label. This is an estate wine made in their home cellar from grapes grown on the property, which borders Chamonix. 10 000 bottles made.

La Petite Vigne The Daniel Collection ‘Amazing Grace’ Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 Franschhoek, South Africa
13.5% alcohol. Lovely sweet, fresh, pure blackcurrant fruit nose with lovely purity. There’s freshness and ripeness combined on the palate. It’s ripe but not too sweet with lovely tannic structure that is grippy but not awkward. Young but so pure and with great potential for development. 93/100
