2022 Heretaunga Cabernet Franc

2022 Heretaunga Cabernet Franc

Hawke's Bay


Old vine, beautifully ripe Cabernet Franc from the Fratelli Vineyards in the Bridge Pa sub-region, 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.
