2022 Cabernet Franc
Notes from Lucy & Alysha!
A Novello style red, perfect chilled or at room temperature. Wild fermented in stainless steel tank, the fruit was left on skins for 2 weeks with light pump overs morning and evenings. It was then pressed to tank and left on lees for 6 months before bottling on Gunaikurnai Land. Grown in the Shelmerdine Vineyard, red and brown sandy clay loams of south-eastern Australia, plus yellow-brown clay loams and gritty, gravelly quartzose sands laid down by the Goulburn River. An historic wine growing region, heat is mitigated by the amundant lakes and billabongs associated with the Goulburn Valley region.
