2018 Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec
Wine Tasting Notes
A densely coloured, medium bodied red blend. A fragrant wine with a blackcurrant, cedar and bay leaf mid palate. Structural Cabernet Franc is supported by aromatic Petit Verdot and fleshy Malbec.
75.5% Cabernet Franc, 13.5% Petit Verdot, 11% Malbec. 100% Swan Valley
Harvested February 2018. 14.8% alc. RRP $25
The three parcels were handpicked separately, in February from the RiverBank Estate Vineyard in the Swan Valley. Hand plunged in small one tonne open fermenters before maturation in seasoned oak hogsheads for twelve months. This is a minimal intervention wine and natural sedimentation will occur!
Only 80 dozen of this wine, affectionally dubbed “Franc Sinatra” were made.
