About

It's great to see Cabernet Franc being made in these bright and modern styles. It's taking the 'seriousness' out of Bordeaux varieties and making them more appealing to the Australian culture. Cab Franc flying solo can be a beautiful thing when handled right. Luke Lambert nails the MO here. The 2014 Denton View Shed Cab Franc is sourced from the warmer, north-western facing slope of the Denton View Hill vineyard. The 2014 yields we small but packed with flavour and it shows in this release. With all the stalks removed the berries were fermented whole in search of the purest, high-toned aromatics the variety can offer and it's safe to say, mission accomplished Luke, it's a belter.

What it Tastes Like

This smells so good. Perfume wafts from the glass, all purple fruit and black olives with earth and fresh picked herbs. The tannins are fine and powdery, the fruit is sweetly set but with a savoury backbone. Delicious modern Australian red wine.
