Le Bonheur Tricorne

Tricorne is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and equal parts of Cabernet Franc and Shiraz, sourced from three top-performing, high-lying vineyards on the farm, with fruit picked from individually selected vines.

Le Bonheur Winemaker, Sakkie Kotzé, says the wine is quite different from the regular Sauvignon Blanc in the range and it’s very smooth with rich and lingering berry spiciness.“This is not as fruit-driven and in many ways is more nuanced. It has a lot of body, is crisp and flinty but with some green and tropical flavours. It’s an excellent food wine, very distinctive and marks the long association that Le Bonheur has with Sauvignon Blanc.”

Tricorne sells for approximately R200 per bottle and the vineyard-designated Sauvignon Blanc, at R75
