2017 was an ideal vintage for Cabernet Sauvignon with a very long, slow ripening period which allowed for a long hang time.A wet spring provided good early vine growth followed by a cooler than average January and February. The summer cooled considerably in early March slowing ripening with the Cabernet harvest on 3rd May. Fruit was harvested in clean and ideal conditions.
NoseLoads of charm to the bouquet, cinnamon and mixed red berries, raspberry coulis and toasty, cedary oak
Palatehe palate is opulent yet focused. Ripe fruit abounds, balanced by mouth coating chalky tannin, which gives the wine texture and length. Ripe mulberry flavours intertwine with cacao and tobacco leaf.
“Frankland River is normally not know for his Cabnert Sauvignon, however this particular wine is really super well made. Quite herbal on the nose and red berries on the palate makes it a medium to full body wine which goes along with red meat very well.”
