About The Wine

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 2015 Denton View Shed Cab Franc is sourced from the warmer, north-western facing slope of the Denton View Hill vineyard. The 2015 grapes well ripened beautifully 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.

The Wine Front

"Corker of a wine. It marshalls some delicious flavours. Redcurrant, port wine jelly, strings of dried herbs, cut grass. It’s succulent, it’s fluid, it has ample personality (almost an undergrowth-like character), it has a subtle strictness to its tannin framework – it’s like the tannin cantilevers back through the fruit – and yet the juiciness of the berried flavours are the main game here. Effortless quality." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
