Frankland Estate Cabernet Franc 2020

Organically grown fruit for this wine was sourced from mature vines on the Isolation Ridge vineyard at Frankland Estate. The grapes were harvested in ideal conditions and fermented in shallow stainless steel open fermenters. They were hand-plunged to keep the ferment even and as gentle as possible, minimising extraction before being aged on lees for 10 months in 500-litre French oak puncheons. Bottled unfiltered and unfined.

Bright, vibrant red colour. Uplifted aroma of redcurrants, earthy overtones, dusty plums, purple lilac florals, savoury, hints of olive, chocolate flecks; an enticing rich nose, restrained, yet delicate. Delicate gravelly, mouthcoating tannins give the wine some lovely length, dense yet soft upfront, medium weighted. It shows mulberry and plum-like flavours with a hint of leather and cherries and a saline finish. Beautifully poised. - Hunter Smith, Frankland Estate
