2017 Cabernet Franc

Complex on the nose with aromas of blueberry, fresh tobacco, dried herbs and a touch of smoke.

$24.95

TASTING NOTES

Complex on the nose with aromas of blueberry, fresh tobacco, dried herbs and a touch of smoke. The palate is fresh and lively with flavours of red berries and smoked meat with balancing acidity and ripe yet grippy tannins enveloping the juicy mid-palate on the savory warm finish.

Enjoy on release with roasted red meats or pastas with rich, savory sauce. Decant to give the wine a chance to soften with air or cellar for the medium-term.

WINEMAKING NOTES

Sourced exclusively from our June’s Vineyard in the Creek Shores sub-appellation, our Cabernet Franc 2017 was harvested in early October after a long and slow ripening period. The grapes were sorted on shaker tables to ensure perfect quality. After crushing and de-stemming the must and skins were moved to stainless steel fermenters where the primary fermentation took place over 3 weeks with pump-overs for colour and flavor extraction. After pressing, malolactic fermentation was completed in tank where the wine was kept until bottling in June 2018 following a light fining and filtration.
