2023 Wilyabrup Cabernet Franc


Hand picked from sandy loam over gravel. The fruit was chilled over night then de-stemmed into an open fermenter, foot trod for a cold soak until wild ferment kicked off. Hand plunged over 10 days and  basket pressed into old puncheons for eight months of ageing. Bottled without fining or filtering.  This Franc is fragrant, bouncy & juicy.

Alc – 13.9%

Vegan Friendly  |  200 doze

“Highly drinkable and compelling wines are the mainstay of this small producer and here’s another to prove that. This comes full of sweet red cherries, blackcurrants, snips of fresh herbs and just the right amount of baking spices to get the palate into gear. Supple yet fine tannins, a juiciness throughout and while not the most complex wine, it’s bloody delicious. Guaranteed the bottle will be drained at dinner.”

– Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion, 95 points
