Description

Rising Cabernet Franc is from the Roundstone Vineyard, not the Rising Vineyard. It is 100% whole bunch Cabernet Franc left untouched in tank for 10 days. Once pressed and finished fermentation, the wine matured in French oak for winter. It is bottled unfined, unfiltered and with only a small amount of sulphur.

Rising Cabernet Franc 2019 wine review:

Light red/purple colour, more like a rosé than a serious red wine. Dark rosé or light Beaujolais. The aroma is slightly reductive and quite herbal, a greenish stemmy aroma dominating. The wine is light-bodied and soft, with very mild, gentle tannins and unobtrusive acidity. It’s a very approachable early-drinking light red, which has plenty of appeal.” HUON HOOKE
The Real Review, 28 February, 2020
Yarra Valley 

A region that is just too big to generalise about. The difference between Upper and Lower Yarra can be the ability to ripen some grapes or not. Great wines are made in the Yarra but it is best to know the producers.

Cabernet Franc

Is actually one of the parents of Cabernet Sauvignon… along with Sauvignon Blanc (oh! The name makes sense now!).  It is most famous for being the third most important grape in quality Bordeaux. But also excels in the Loire Valley (where it lived before it went to Bordeaux), especially Chinon and Saumur. The wines are bright red in colour, highlight aromatic with raspberries, rose petals, violets along with tobacco, cassis and some herbal elements. The best examples can live as long as any great wine.
