‘Hanna's Hill’ Cabernet Malbec - Reserve
Our Reserve 'Hanna’s Hill' Cabernet Malbec under cork, showcases the intense Frankland River Cabernet and Malbec in partnership. After harvest, the parcels of Frankland River Cabernet and Malbec were co-fermented to ensure seamless integration of the two varieties from the beginning. Careful monitoring during fermentation with frequent pump-overs ensured maximum colour & flavour extraction from the skins. After pressing out, the wine was put to barrel in a mixture of new and older French oak for 10 months maturation before blending and bottling.
Brilliantly inky & dense crimson with a purple red hue
Powerful aromas of dark berry fruits and plum, with complexing dry savoury spice and lifted violets.
A well balanced and full flavoured wine with great length and persistence of flavour. Showcasing rich, dark berry fruit flavours whilst being balanced by the drying tannins and well- integrated oak. The depth of fruit and spicy finish of this wine allows it to be enjoyed young, yet will also reward with a few years in the cellar.
Beautiful drinking now and over the next 6 years or so.
