17 years ago, Sacred Hill planted six rows of Cabernet Franc in our Deerstalkers Vineyard in the Gimblett Gravels. It quickly became an essential component in our top tier red blends. However, some vintages produce a barrel or two that are simply too good to blend away. This rich, sumptuous 2018 Cabernet Franc is a perfect example. There is a beautiful synergy between the aromas and the palate. On the nose there is five spice and mocha with lifted floral notes of wild thyme and violets. Complex flavours of liquorice and dark berries are elegant

Complex flavours of liquorice and dark berries are elegantly integrated with the oak. A backbone of acidity carries through to a concentrated, lingering finish. A wine that shows all the quintessential hallmarks of this classical varietal.
