“It’s a red-white wine, well, a dark coloured wine made from cabernet franc and sauvignon blanc that winemaker Bryan Martin amusingly calls ‘FLANC!’. Here we go. It’s from a single vineyard, co-ferments naturally, hangs out in old oak. Bottled for freshness and vitality. Crazy cool.

Ballistic drinkin’ right here. Perky, crunchy, fresh, savoury under just-ripe berry fruitiness with a fistful of herbs. The palate feels tight but blessed with purity of fruit and great drive. The rush across the palate is part of the thrill of drinking – loads of flavour, fine tannin, herby detail, succulence, whips away long and finds a tight pucker. Medium bodied glory. Seriously delicious, with enough structure to thrill the wine nerds amongst us.”
