Crawford River Carbernet Franc 2016
Cabernet Franc is the parent of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Carmenere. It’s main claim to fame is when blended with Merlot in St Emilion & Pomerol. We think Crawford River makes one of the best examples in Australia.
Just the third release of this wine. 120 cases only. Bright and fresh red fruits and a touch of that smoky tea leaf character than Franc often shows. A great introduction to a variety that tends to be blended away in Australia. Ian Cook FWC.
