2018 ‘Rising Ground’ Cabernet Franc

We have long understood that Cabernet Franc enhances our Cabernet Sauvignon when blended in small percentages. Increasing our plantings have enabled us to keep enough to bottle as a separate wine. Enjoyable upon release, but a few years in years in the cellar will not hurt. Try with a Morocco style lamb tagine.

Colour:Medium red.

Aroma:Subtle/pretty aromas of redcurrant, rose perfume and crushed violets with just a whisper of French oak in the mix.

Palate:Medium bodied, displaying lovely bright, red fruits, well balanced acidity and very fine tannins. Finishes soft, fleshy and long with the elegance that typifies the variety.
