2020 Cabernet Franc
The fruit was hand-plunged in small batch open-top fermenters, with a total of six days on skins to achieve a brightly fruited wine with good flesh and a refined tannin profile. French oak barrels were used, of which 25% were brand new. The wine was aged in barrel for nine months, and then bottled under in January 2020 under a screw cap.
• Smoky cassis, red currant, cherry, mulberry, bay leaf, aniseed and violet aromas
• Smooth, silky tannins with cherries, currants, violets and spice flavours
• Lovely light to medium bodied wine
• Ready for immediate drinking and in the coming few years
