Cabernet Franc 2017 – Black Market Deal #35538
- Textured, savoury
Cabernet drinkers - we have a wine for you! This is cabernet sauvignon’s cousin cabernet franc, from the powerful soils of Wrattonbully, SA. While franc is known to be the prettier, more floral variety from the cabernet family - this is franc with some serious grunt, much more serious than you’d expect, so cab sauv drinkers - read on.
There are pretty florals and vibrant raspberries on the nose, then BANG! In comes the power on the palate - dark fruits, lots of fine tannin and a structure that speaks of careful winemaking and serious ageability. It’s medium-bodied but deep and powerful. The serious and structured side of cab franc. The wine saw around 10% new French oak and spent 18 months in barrel relaxing and developing - the result is a classy wine at the start of a long journey of great drinking.
