Uva Mira The Dance Cabernet Franc 2014

Show us your moves.

Uva Mira in Stellenbosch is turning out some seriously classy stuff since Christiaan Coetzee took over as winemaker in 2012, The Dance Cabernet Franc 2014 a case in point.

Matured for 19 months in French oak, 70% new, the nose shows red fruit, some leafiness and subtle oak-derived notes of vanilla and spice. The attention to detail in terms of both viticulture and winemaking is striking – the wine pure and fresh, medium bodied yet intensely flavoured.  It’s very pleasing to drink now but equally should reward maturation. Price: R495 a bottle.

Editor’s rating: 92/100.
