    Single vineyard, unfined, unfiltered, 'natural', rustic, cellar-aged, pure Cabernet Franc wine

    WINEMAKER'S NOTE

    A rustic, 'funky', robust, earthy, rich and smoky wine, with deep garnet hue raspberry and subtle spice on the nose, dark fruit, floral characters and dark chocolate on soft, fine tannins. Described as a 'stunning wine' by a recent (November 2014) illustrious cellar door visitor - a winemaker and viticulturist to famous estates in Europe and California.

     
    CELLARING

    Has developed very well with the long cellar-ageing considering the youthful vine age (4 years old) when this wine was made  - so drinking well at  January  2015 for those who like older, soft, ultra-natural and 'funky' wines for a change from very young, fruity wines.
