After our previous year's sucess with Cabernet Franc we decided to bottle another batch of this fantastic single varietal wine. Only four barrels were made, so total production was just 100 cases.

Fruit:

100% Bridge Pa Triangle, Hawkes Bay.

100% Cabernet Franc

Winemaking:

This Cabernet Franc was a mixture of whole berry fermented for maximum flavour and colour extraction, and gently macerated fruit to add tannin and body. It was gently pumped over twice daily during fermentation. The wine was bottled after 18 months development in French oak.

Alcohol: 12.0 %

Sensory Evaluation:

Colour: Vibrant Ruby.

Aroma: Intense blackberry with rose florals. Balanced oak, with notes of tobacco.

Palate: Dark berry fruits, with bright acidity give the wine depth, fine tannins provide elegant structure .

Food Matches:

Matches well with Italian meat dishes, good steak and lamb.

Cellaring:

Will cellar well for 3-10 years.
