2018 CABERNET FRANC
Traditionally used as an aromatic component in Bordeaux blends, Cabernet Franc really shines as a single varietal. French oak was used to mature this wine for 12 months, creating a wine with an exceptionally delicate tannin backbone that is in very limited supply.

Nose: Lifted blueberry and cassis with subtle notes of nutmeg, cedar and charry oak.
Palate: Blackberry, blueberry and raspberry, with exceptionally fine, furry oak tannins.
Drink: Drinking well now and for 5 years.
Residual Sugar: <0.5g per litre
