The Last Elephant Red Blend - Franschhoek Cellar
Franschhoek Cellar The Last Elephant is a red wine blended from the best batches the winery can produce every year.Polished black fruit, evident tannins yet supple with a complex palate and well integrated modern finish “An iron fist in a velvet glove”. The nose brims with moreish dark fruit, showing blackcurrants, cherries, mulberries along with cedar wood, lead pencil and cigar box aromas. These develop in the glass and are joined by raspberry, spice and a hint of gaminess. On the palate the wine is powerful yet elegant with fine tannins that continue to soften in the glass. A wine that lives up to the mystical legacy of the gentle giants that once roamed the mountains of the Cape Winelands. This wine is a tribute to the last elephant that was seen departing the Franschhoek Valley in the late 19th century.
52% Merlot, 29% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc & 9% Other.
