"Rich and ripe aromas of freshly picked raspberries and strawberries with hints of cranberry and apple blossom. Lovely and dry, the palate is packed with berries, watermelon and a dash of soft, rounded acidity with a wonderful spicy note on the finish. Extremely food friendly, match with chicken, salmon or creamy pasta dishes" Angie Atkinson, The Wine Writer, Jul 2021

Varietal raspberry and strawberry aromas with perfumed and spiced notes. Vibrant flavours of red berries and spice on a fresh and lively palate with a soft, long finish. Drink it young and lightly chilled.

This estate produces a range of wines made to be great collaborators, with a talent for enhancing flavours and textures.

The Cabernet Franc is sourced from parcels within the Bridge Pa Triangle Winegrowing Region and from the Dartmoore Valley. Bridge Pa is the warmer site offering great concentration in flavours and palate richness, while Dartmoore is slightly cooler providing intense floral and red fruit aromatics.

This wine is a direct pressed wine rather than made from a bleed off (saignée) of a red fermentation, meaning that the Cabernet Franc fruit is specifically grown for this wine. The grapes are picked at optimal ripeness and then held in the press for a few hours to gain the desired amount of colour and tannin and then pressed to tank for clarification and fermentation. Different yeast are used to provide complexity and cool fermented to enhance aromatics. This wine is made in lower acid style making it very approachable and food friendly, and is bottled early to retain its vibrant aromatics.
