Indulge Yourself

Frankland Estate Olmo’s Reward Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Frankland River 2012 $45 Value: very good

Few Aussie reds are based on cabernet franc, but it suits the elegant, fruit-driven, unforced style of this maker. The fragrance includes raspberry and cherry with a hint of bubblegum. The tannins are fine and gentle. Oak takes a back seat. A stylish red. Best 2016 to 2036. 14.5 per cent alcohol. 93/100 – Huon’s Wine 360

Food: roast saddle of hare

Stockists: Five Way Cellars, Sydney; Prince Wine & Spirits, Essendon, Melbourne
