Woodlands Cabernet Franc Merlot 2017 (Margaret River, Western Australia) "...plum, herbs, tobacco..."
This wine is a blend of 52% Cabernet Franc, 43% Merlot, and 5% Malbec that has spent 10 months maturing in one, two and three year old French barrel.
“Here’s one of the wines I most look forward to tasting each year. If I see it in a bottle shop, I quite often buy a couple to drink when the mood takes me. Always a delicious wine, and no change this vintage. It has the small red berry and leafy perfume of Franc, and the plummy richness of good quality Merlot. Medium bodied, succulent, yet savoury, the pencils, the herbs, the ripe yet streaky tannin, tobacco and earth on a long and satisfying finish. Rarely disappoints. Always a treat. Yes.” – 93 Points, The Winefront
