THE TECHNICAL STUFF:
The 2021 vintage had us planning to make "The Little Circus" once more but due to fruit availability this wasn't possible. This left us with the most amazing Cabernet Franc fruit that we just couldn’t not make into a wine. The fruit was machine harvested and had a long cool fermentation period in stainless steel to maximise fruit flavour and aromas. It was then transferred to 2 year old French oak puncheons for 8 months to add texture to the palate. The final wine has aromas of crushed raspberries, with a fresh fruity palate and subtle tannins.
Drink now or cellar for 5-10 years.
