About

For freshness and vitality in the land of Bordeaux varieties, the modern expressions of Cabernet Franc popping up all over the country really take the cake. This "enchanting" version of the variety comes from Somos - two young winemakers and free spirits in South Australia making wines from varieties they see as underrepresented. This was picked and pressed early, matured in old French oak, every decision along the winemaking path looking for immediate drinkability. Made in a fresh and frisky style, after tasting this it's easy to see where the surge in popularity for Cab Franc is coming from. Campbell Mattinson gave it a big thumbs up, with 92 points and the comment that for him it's a, "Huge yes for drinkability and interest."

What it Tastes Like

"Enchanting wine. Cool and frisky but with enough meat on its bones to satisfy. Fresher than a sea breeze. Herbs and grasses but bitumen and licorice-strap too. Floral elements. The more you look the more you find. Huge yes for drinkability and interest." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
