2016 Cabernet Franc
"black cherry and blackberry mingling with tobacco and chocolate"
92 Points | John Schreiner
Golden Mile Bench
100% estate grown Cabernet Franc from Arise Bench.
Matured for 16 months in a combination of new (22%) and 1-2 year old (78%) French oak barrels.
Enticing cherry and raspberry aromas greet you while notes of sage and lavender create a complex bouquet. The palate is eqally intricate, balancing fine tannins with mouthwatering acidity and bright red fruits. The finish is long and offers notes of dried plum, cocoa pawder and tobacco leaf.
