About this Item

CWG Cabernet Franc/Merlot, 1999
4 (1 x 4) 750ml

Cordoba was situated high up on the slopes of the Helderberg Mountain, the last vintage produced to date was 2004. After the maiden 1995 vintage acquired 5 stars in the 1999 edition of Platter’s, the wine (along with their maker, Chris Keet) was propelled to cult-like status, amplified further by their small production. Cordoba estate has now been revived as Taaibosch – for the olive-green indigenous shrub that grows there in some profusion – and is as beautiful a farm as ever, with its steep slopes and varying aspects and view across to False Bay.

Sought after by wine enthusiasts for its quality and unique expression of South African terroir.
The Cordoba CWG Cabernet Franc/Merlot 1999 represents a combination of an outstanding vintage, skilled winemaking, a unique blend of grape varieties, and the influence of time, making it a special wine that could offer a memorable tasting experience for enthusiasts and collectors.
