2020 Franc Black McLaren Vale Cabernet franc
Contains 6% Nero d’Avola in the blend, and that grape really makes itself known.
Dried roses and dusty spices, port jelly, redcurrant and raspberry, with a sort of ferrous and ozone character in the mix. Hard to describe what a mean, really, maybe something like warm bricks? Intense small berried flavour, a smattering of sweet grassiness, but ripe fruit a plenty, firm tannin, concentrated but kind of playful too. Finishes with blackcurrant and a black olive savoury touch. Interesting. Good.
