Home Cabernet Franc 2015

Bright ruby hue. Vibrant aromas of plum, blackcurrant, decomposing leaf, porcini mushrooms, and freshly tilled humid earth. Firm tannins give the wine a savoury structure balanced with luscious but restrained crisp forest fruit flavours. A lively mineral length gives the wine a refreshing and invigorating finish.

Our first vintage of Cabernet Franc. It was 100% destemmed, and  fermented in an open top fermenter for 28 days using Home vineyard derived yeast. We hand plunged once per day during the peak of ferment. Pressed using a basket press and aged in old barrique (66%) and stainless steel (34%) for 6 months. No SO2 added. Unfined and unfiltered
