2018 Cabernet Franc - Limited Pre-Release

2018 Cabernet Franc - Limited Pre-Release

Regular price $30.00

Handpicked at optimal ripeness and flavour. Whole bunch pressed then fermented in small batch fermenters and hand plunged. The wine spent 10 months in new and seasoned oak. A nose that demonstrates a herbal, dried oregano and lead pencil shavings. Ripe cassis and plum.

A dry wine with fine tannins and ripe black fruit with licorice and cherry overtones. A hint of tobacco leaf on the mid palate. A full bodied wine that delivers flavour, balance and tremendous length. A classic Cabernet Franc.

The West Australian - Ray Jordan, April 2020

"This is the best wine I have tasted from Silverstream. It was a very good vintage and has been handled perfectly to get the best out of the fruit and this variety. It's smooth with chalky fine tannins and a subtle infusion of oak. The black inner fruit core is expressive, and the perfumed aromas show some classic ethereal cab franc characteristics. Really nice wine." 94/100 points. 

The Wine Front – Campbell Mattinson, March 2020

“Good flow of flavour here. Good volume of it too. Toast, briar, clove and dark/red berried flavours rumble attractively through the palate, grainy/grassy/dusty tannin leading it through the finish. Both gum leaf and floral notes add lift throughout. Drinking well now but will hold and mature over the next handful of years.” 91 points
