RESERVE CABERNET FRANC 2018
What flavour and what aromatics this wine produced. The Reserve selection process was difficult due to the quality across the board, but what a combination of 3 barrels that were found. This vintage is a true classic and we may not see its like for many many years to come. I do not think we have produced better wines overall than in 2018 and this Cabernet Franc has reached the heights of the extraordinary 2014 version that will remain as a beacon for us.
Mike Bennie from Winefront writes … " “So well knit” is the quicksilver thought that slipped in and then out of my brain. Seamless ride of blue fruit, quiet cedary-clove-cinnamon oak, a lick of green herb, bayleaf and mint, almost chocolatey profile to tannins including a little powdery, 70% cocoa dark chocolate thing to finish. Cool, fine, long, tight-shapely and lithe. A very lovely wine that delivers great drinking and elegance." Rated: 94 Points (Gary Walsh 94+)
