Soft and succulent

Leconfield Cabernet Franc 2017, Coonawarra, AUD $29

This is a bright, youthful, fruit-driven wine, which is slightly callow but has abundant fresh red-fruit aromas with some of the banana-like overtones of a newly-made wine. It’s soft and juicy on the tongue: a wine that should suit the current fashion for young, fruity, low-tannin reds. (Screwcap)
