About

Ross Hill, one of the premier producers in Orange make one of the best Cabernet Francs in the country.

Winemakers Phil and Rochelle Kerney’s methodology is “based on old-world techniques executed with modern quality control and precision”. That practice is no better exemplified than in their Cab Franc. This is one of the top 5 in the country for this variety.

Fermented with wild yeasts, with 18 months in French barriques, this is pretty serious stuff. It’s a wine that speaks of a cool region and sensitive winemaking striving for classic characters. The 2014 is abundant in plush, luscious fruit and will thrill any lovers of elite Bordeaux-esque reds.

What It Tastes Like

“It’s a dry, structural release but there’s sweet fruit here too; it’s an “intellectual” style but it also explains its mission clearly. Grass, herbs, boysenberry, black cherry and a swoosh of creamy oak. Pepper too, perhaps, possibly. Good now and will cellar well over the medium term at the very least.” - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
