Fabulous franc

Leconfield Cabernet Franc 2016, Coonawarra, AUD $29

Wildly aromatic with notes of fragrant raspberries and warm cherry jam. The fruit-focused palate is supple, beautifully quiet and soft. Although reserved in nature, the wine has excellent concentration and varietal definition. Sourced from a one-hectare cabernet franc block planted in 1982. (Screwcap)
