About this Item
'Made at Van Biljon winery from fruit purchased across the Stellenbosch region this remarkable Bordeaux blend combines 29% Cabernet Sauvignon with 26% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Franc and 13% Petit Verdot. The new oak is kept to 10% here, allowing the precise, elegant, graphite and herbal notes to express themselves. Polished tannins, fresh acidity and ripe, but not over-ripe flavours. Drink: 2014-22' - Tim Atkin SA Wine Report 2014, 95/100
'Fresh 11 has lovely leafy fragrance from Cabernet Franc component - there's more Cabernet Sauvignon, plus Merlot, Petit Verdot & Malbec. Some robust power, yet elegant; charming yet restrained; pure fruit, but savoury too. Only a smidge new oak. Approachable, yet years to develop.' - Platter's SA Wine Guide 2015, 4.5*
