Wine tasting notes

An excellent medium - dark red with lovely tones. The nose is rich with lovely vibrant fruit character that is quite lifted. The oak is married seamlessly to the wine with a small percentage of new oak barrels providing excellent support. The wine has wonderful texture with length and fruit weight filling the mouth. The red berry fruit of both Merlot and Cabernet Franc dominate. there is also a touch of cool climate spiciness which combines well with the oak that is there lingering in the background.

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2011) - 85 pts

Jun 2013 - Reviewer : Lisa Perrotti-Brown. Medium deep, garnet-purple, the 2011 No 17 Merlot Cabernet Franc Cabernet has aromas of warm plums, mulberries and loam with nuances of Chinese five spice and soy. Medium-bodied with a decent amount of black and red fruit flavor in the mouth, it is framed by a medium level of chewy tannins and finishes a little herbal.


James Halliday (2013) - 86 pts

57% merlot, 37% cabernet franc, 6% cabernet sauvignon, destemmed/crushed, wild-fermented, matured for 12 months in French oak (30% new). The lack of vibrancy in the colour is matched by the slightly oaky, or, better phrased, under-fruited palate. Nice, but no more than that.


Wine Front (2009) - 93 pts

Mint, rosehip tea, redcurrant, raspberry, a grassy Franc fragrance and subtle French oak in support. Medium weight, fine and silky – svelte even – with balanced acidity and a long fresh finish. Lovely. All class. Red ribbons flowing etc. etc. Would that there were more local wines like this, for local people. Drinking it makes one feel…sophisticated. I’ve written 93-94 on my score sheet, for the record.
