About

This is only the second time that John Thomson has ever bottled his Cabernet Franc as a unique wine. His outstanding vineyard in Henty produces glorious Cabernet Sauvignon, often the Cabernet Franc will be blended away as a component of their Cabernet Merlot blend. But when the stars align and the fruit gets ripe, this wine is something rare and special. As Mike Bennie put it in his glowing 94 point review, "Those who like finer, lighter, but structured wines will be shouting from the rooftops ‘this is unreal!’. I am." Extremely limited and extremely delicious. Wonderful stuff from one of Victoria's most loved family wineries.

What it Tastes Like

"Aside it being insanely drinkable, it shows a metered, even, quiet control and finesse. There’s ripe, almost jubey berry fruitiness under the twigs and sprigs of dried and fresh green herbs. It’s almost sinewy in texture, lean as, but flavoursome as, and shows a good bite of crisp tannin to close. Perfume is just that, perfumed; a beautiful volume of scent here. Those who like finer, lighter, but structured wines will be shouting from the rooftops ‘this is unreal!’. I am." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
