This wine represents classic cool-climate Cabernet Franc. Red berry fruit, balanced structure and focused varietal character. Well suited to our site and the region.
Colour is ruby to garnet. Bright aromas of red berry fruit, cigar box and savoury spice with a herbaceous undertone. On the palate the wine is soft and supple with a juicy core feel. Flavours of strawberry, pepper and baking spice are backed with nicely structured acidity. Polished tannins lead to a medium+ finish.
