About

93

Here’s one of the wines I most look forward to tasting each year. If I see it in a bottle shop, I quite often buy a couple to drink when the mood takes me. Always a delicious wine, and no change this vintage. It has the small red berry and leafy perfume of Franc, and the plummy richness of good quality Merlot. Medium bodied, succulent, yet savoury, the pencils, the herbs, the ripe yet streaky tannin, tobacco and earth on a long and satisfying finish. Rarely disappoints. Always a treat. Drink 2018-2028

Cherry chocolate cake, mint, and beef jerky make up the primary aromas on this red blend from one of Margaret River's top producers. The palate is medium bodied, with dusty, drying yet elegant tannins and a salt and cherry finish. Drink now.

Product Description:

"The palate of this wine is playful and energetic, with lovely lifted primary Cabernet Franc characters of briar patch and raspberry combining with blackcurrant from the Merlot and a touch of white spice from the Malbec. The finish is fine, with bright acidity and vibrancy."- Importer
