TROPHY (BEST IN CLASS) | Royal Easter Show
GOLD MEDAL | Royal Easter Show
Good quality, straight cabernet franc is really hard to come by as lots of winemakers will blend it away however Beach House have bucked this trend and we're loving the result. Chris Harrison only produces cabernet franc in excellent vintages and that's clearly paid off for him here. The wine itself has a healthy dose of tannic grip and plenty of dark sweet fruit flavours but it's well-balanced and is a stunning example of Gimblett Gravels Cabernet Franc.
The winery writes "Cabernet Franc is our favourite variety from Beach House Wines Gimblett Gravels vineyard. Focused and fruitful with fragrant violets, chocolate, dark forest berries and spice. It has fine lasting tannins that always deliver."
