2019 Heretaunga Cabernet Franc

2020 Heretaunga Cabernet Franc

Hawke's Bay

Old vine, beautifully ripe Cabernet Franc from our Bridge Pa and Mahu vineyards, traditionally fermented on skins, aged in fine French oak barriques.

Vibrant moderate ruby colour. Lovely aromas of ripe red fruits, cassis, red flowers, spice and a hint of tobacco and blackcurrant leaf. The palate is medium weight with fresh raspberry, plum and sweet herb flavours balanced by a lovely seam of vanilla and cedar from both fruit and oak maturation. Long and graceful. Delicious early drinking and through 2026.
