2020 Cabernet Franc

Production – 56 dozen

Colour: Inky Crimson

Nose: Plum jam, vanilla pods and a touch of cinnamon

Palate: Black forest gateaux and dark plums are plentiful in the glass. Rich and ripe from a warmer vintage this Cabernet franc is dense and concentrated with some underlying strawberry notes. A bright acidity envelopes the richness giving balance. Fine cocoa powder tannins finish the wines generous fruit giving length.

Awards and Reviews:

New Release June 2022

This has a satisfyingly leafy, crunchy nose, leading to a cassis-laden palate. However, the oak is resinous and dusty and intrudes on the glorious fruit in the mouth. While there may be great merit to this wine (some may love it), the rusticity is a little overbearing for me, although I do like the distinct style of the wine. 56 dozen. Erin Larkin Published 03 August 2022
