29 Estate · 2007 · Franc
Our small cabernet franc vineyard is the most easily viewed from the terrace of the winery, on a north-west facing slope along the southern edge of the 29 Estate. We planted our cabernet franc vines in 2000 and have enjoyed watching and tasting their amazing development year over year!
Our 2007 Cabernet Franc greets the nose with lifted red fruits which mingle with dried flowers and lavender. On the palate, dark fruits, ripe Bing cherries supported by firm tannins on the mid-palate lead seamlessly into a lasting finish. Wet stone and minerality dominate the structure of this seductive wine allowing it to be paired with rich, gamy meats – we love venison and roasted rack of lamb.
Enjoy over the 10 years.
