2018 Cabernet Franc
The vintage 2018 in Margaret River presented us with close to ideal growing conditions for wine grapes. The temperatures and rainfall were remarkably close to average for the season. It was very typical of Margaret River’s Mediterranean climate with a cool, wet winter and a mild, dry summer.
We had a gentle spring, with very few damaging cold fronts to contend with. The rain which fell in December was well timed, filling soil profiles leading into veraison. The dry conditions through autumn meant that picking decisions were able to be made to optimise quality.
The 2018 Victory Point Cabernet Franc shows varietal floral aromas of elderflower with red fruits of raspberry, strawberry and red currants along with chargrilled red capsicum and chilli chocolate. The palate brims with voluminous mouth-filling red fruit flavour, which leads to mouth watering fine and savoury tannins with a hint of dark chocolate. This wine is perfect with many great food dishes.
