About

David Geyer is challenging some of the traditions of the Barossa Valley, giving a second life to some of the neglected sites across the region. The varieties he’s playing with aren’t exactly mainstream but they are all universally delicious.

This is a ripe and juicy version of Cabernet Franc - fresh from 25-year-old vines in the Vine Vale region.

Only old oak, next to no additions, it’s all about letting the site express itself for Dave, in this case, that expression is a seriously slurpable red with bucket loads of flavour. Barossa richness married to an aromatic variety, it’s a winning combination.

What It Tastes Like

Ripe mulberries, red and black currant, tomato leaf, It’s varietal but it has the Barossa ripeness which is a big part of its personality. It’s plump and friendly in style. Fine sheets of tannin tug at the sides of sweet fruit. It’s a slick, velvety ride. It’s playful, smashable, and a little more cuddly than the crisp and crunchy Cab Franc’s out there nowadays.
