‘Hanna's Hill’ Cabernet Malbec
Our 'Hanna’s Hill' Cabernet Malbec 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.
