Brash Higgins FRNC Cabernet Franc 2018

The Brash Higgins FRNC Cabernet Franc is made with grapes from Peter Somerville’s sustainably farmed Clos Antonio vineyard in McLaren Vale’s Whites Valley, which was planted on cracked black clay soils in 2001. After harvesting, the grapes were destemmed and underwent fermentation in open-topped fermenters using native yeasts, with a three week maceration period, before being pressed. The wine then spent twelve months in six to twelve-year-old 300-litre French oak barrels before being bottled unfined. Combining dark berry flavours with Cabernet Franc’s distinctive capsicum notes, this is robust and well-structured, but the tannins are supple and rounded enough to give the wine a pleasing mouthfeel, whilst adding length to the finish.
