The Crayères Vineyard Cabernet Franc 2020 is the seventh vintage of our Cabernet Franc dominant wines. 2020 was a relatively cool vintage in Wrattonbully. It was also relatively dry, with 76% of average rainfall over the growing season. Good rainfall in late November interfered with flowering and fruit set of all the varieties, leading to very low yields. Temperatures post véraison (February and March) were lower than average, and these mild summer weather conditions were perfect for ripening our Cabernet Franc.

A very fragrant wine, with seductive floral scents and lifted stalky characters. The tannin structure from the Cabernet Franc is enhanced by the use of stems in the fermenters and the fruit flavours are initially subdued, but come to the fore as the wine unfolds in the glass, giving us a very charming and seductive wine.

Cabernet Franc is a red grape variety used as an important blending component for Bordeaux Blends, but also as an exceptional stand alone expression in the Loire Valley. Cabernet Franc is the father grape to Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot and with a uniquely savoury dried cayenne/paprika note that distinguishes it from its child grapes. Medium bodied, graced with good levels of acidity and a slightly savoury bias, Cab Franc is a great choice for those who enjoy elegant reds with complexity and pairs perfectly with tomato based dishes and smoked meats.
