Eden Valley Merlot Cabernet Franc

2016

The heart and soul of the Barossa lives in our lovingly nurtured Estate Vineyard wines. Cool climate, ancient soils, pristine fruit, slower ripening, fuller flavours: this wine is testament to our commitment to excellence and craftsmanship.

91 points, James Halliday - "A 66/34% blend, it is in the powerful Irvine style with spice, bracken, red and purple fruits, tannins and oak all on stage. An uncommon blend outside of WA."
