2016 Cabernet Franc

Bursting out of the glass with aromas of ripe blueberry and candied fruit.

$24.95

TASTING NOTES

Bursting out of the glass with aromas of ripe blueberry and candied fruit, it is rich and ripe with chewy tannins enveloping the juicy mid-palate with more blueberry and plum notes. The finish is warm, with a touch of tannic grip.

Enjoy on release with roasted red meats finished with fruit compote. Decant to give the wine a chance to soften with air or cellar for the medium-term.

WINEMAKING NOTES

Harvesting for each vineyard took place in late September and early October and the grapes were vinified separately. The grapes came in in near-perfect condition so minimal sorting was required. After crushing and de-stemming the grapes were moved to stainless steel fermenters where the primary fermentation took place over 3 weeks. After pressing, malolactic fermentation was completed in tank and the wines were kept separate until final blending and bottling in August 2017.
