This estate grown Cabernet Franc is from the foothills of the Cullerin range on Lake George at Lerida Estate Winery. The fruit was harvested later in the season to maximise maturity and fruit flavour. The fruit was gently destemmed and fermented in small open pots leaving the wine in contact with skins fro three weeks. Extended time in 3rd fill oak barrels adds complexity to the nose and softens the palate. The result is a delicious style of Cabernet Franc showing dark berry fruits and a slight cabernet tomato leaf character.
Drink now or cellar for up to 5 years.
