About The Wine

Juicy and vibrant Cab Franc here - lunch-time red, anyone?

It comes from the Yarra Valley on the Punt Road vineyard in Coldtream.

This is fermented as 100% whole bunches adding savoury spice to what is joyous, jubilant, jubey Franc fruit.

This is both a drinker's and a thinker's wine. Juicy, succulent and super moreish, this is one of those great "go-to" reds with a bit of interest. Unbeatable value.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

"Juicy and seductive. Fernet branca, earth, and fruit of the bramble. Tonic, red licorice and clove" - Tim Shand (Winemaker)

Additional Info

From The Producer

Meet Franc! 100% whole bunch. An alternative approach to the oldest of wine grapes. All bunches went into the fermenter. Foot stomped once a day. Racked once by gravity. Bottled while bursting with juvenile charm. Minimal adds, no finings.

Blend : Cabernet Franc (100%)
Closure : Screw cap
Drink Until : 2021
Bottle Size : 750ml
