In front of Sue-Ann's home, there stands an ancient Horse Chestnut Tree with an interesting back story. As steadfast and true as this beautiful tree, our Chestnut Tree Cabernet Franc delivers intensity, dominance and longevity, just like its namesake. 

 

Introducing the 2018 Chestnut Tree Cabernet Franc. 

Vinified from hand-picked 100% estate grown fruit (10yr old vines in 2018) in the Vinemount Ridge sub-appellation. After pressing, the wine was hand-plunged twice a day for 28 days in bins before transfer to tank to complete fermentation. The wine was aged for 22 months in French and American oak. 

Alc. 13.0%     RS 3.0 g/L  TA 5.8 g/l     pH 3.68

Full tasting notes to come. 


Perfumed, with bramble fruit and a hint of chocolate; palate of plush, concentrated fruit and wild graphite notes. ~ Decanter Tasting Panel

 

Enticing cassis with medicinal undertones and a wonderfully balanced palate that is infused with sweet spice and chocolate. Moreish to the core. ~ IWSC Tasting Panel
