2017 Margaret River Cabernet Franc
SOLD OUT, Sorry.
2017 Cabernet Franc: 160 doz made. From a vineyard in Rosa Brook, on the banks of Margaret River, ~20km inland planted in the mid-1970s. After a three day cold soak, we fermented this in open ‘Omni’ bins. Hand plunging them twice a day, after it was dry we left it on skins for a total of 41 days. This results in a change in the shape of the tannins, making them more structural, fine and long - Eurotannins. Then into old French barrels for maturation. After 13 months in oak this wine was bottled without any acid additions, no fining & no filtration. Aromatic, structural & complex. 13.5%
