- ABV 95%
- Closure: Stelvin
Totally opaque black dark red core with a deep dark red hue. Pronounced ripe blackcurrant aromas mix with hints of black cherry and liquorice followed by cedary tobacco and spicy dried herb notes. Ripe and intensely flavoured, the medium weighted palate sees rich dark and red currant flavours interact with mulberry, tobacco, earthy fresh herbs and spicy cedar characters. Supple mid palate feel with slightly grainy tannins and good natural acidity the supportive backbone. Long savoury red to dark fruited aftertaste.
Cellar 5-6 years.
Cabernet franc as a feature from Crawford River is a pretty exciting thing. This is one classy wine.
Pitch-perfect medium weight while being pitch-perfect in terms of that tightrope balance of cabernet franc between ripe fruit and herbal-greenery. It’s heady in choc-berry, liquorice, anise and mocha scents while offering enthusiasts a whiff of brambles, sage leaf and pepper. The palate has a gentle richness with fruit character squelchy, fresh and just right in a sweet-sour zone. It’s long, a little lush but not overt, offers a sense of elegance and yet high drinkability. A charm. Drink 2018-2027.
