2020 Cabernet Franc

2020 Great Western 
Cabernet Franc

TASTING NOTES

Colour: Bright crimson with a purple hue
Bouquet: A very attractive nose of pomegranate, rose petals, cassis and Brazil nuts.
Palate: Succulent and plush dark berry flavours with velvety tannins and a lingering minerality. Lots of extract and flavour yet soft and graceful.
Cellaring: This youthful wine is great expression of the quality of Cabernet Franc possible in Great Western. This wine is drinking well now with food, but it will soften and gain complexity over the next 10- 15 years.
Pairing: Try it with Lamb Rogan Josh
Vintage: A hot and dry growing season meant the vines ripened quickly and crops were lower than average. Sufficient water supply ensured the grapevines remained in good health and a cool February ensured all the natural acidity was retained at harvest. The grapes had bundles of concentrated flavour and lots of vibrant acidity.
