Hancock and Sons
Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
Blueberry, cherry, coconut and chocolate notes are evident with just a hint of oak from 12 months barrel maturation. This wine is vegan friendly as it is unfined.
This wine is a blend of 50% Bridge Pa Cabernet Franc, 30% Gimblett Road Cabernet Franc and 20% Gimblett Road Cabernet Sauvignon. The fruit was hand-harvested. The soils of Gimblett Road are very young, mainly deep river gravels with a little sand. These soils produce powerful and structured wines. Bridge Pa has older soils with sandy loam over red metal gravels. These soils produce softer, round, more fruit-driven wines.
The accessibility and juiciness of Bridge Pa Cabernet Franc is complimented by the grunt and power of the Gimblett Road fruit.
While this wine is eminently drinkable now, it will benefit from bottle age for a further 4 or 5 years.
Great with casseroles, stews and any red meat or pasta meals.
Price based on case of any 12 wines, all-inclusive of freight, taxes, duty and insurance from NZ Producer to your door in Australia. All prices based on live exchange rate.
