Region: Western Australia
Grape(s): Cabernet Franc
Style: Full-bodied, red wine aged in new French oak
Medium ruby in the glass. Spicy tones at first sniff, but with a bit of air, this opens up beautifully to fruit notes of plum, blackcurrant, blueberry and hints of hibiscus tea. Full-bodied with high acid and slightly unripe tannins. Juicy fruits. So balanced. Long finish. Everything you want in a Cab Franc, which is often not seen on the AUS market.
