Frankland River, Australia
Cabernet Sauvignon (73%), Malbec (22%) and Cabernet Franc (5%)
The Blackbutt is a fine-tuned blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (73%), Malbec (22%) and Cabernet Franc (5%) from the oldest blocks of estate-grown fruit. The parcels are fermented separately in small open fermenters and hand plunged 3 times a day before pressing and maturation in French oak for 20 months.
Color: Bright crimson with a garnet rim
Nose: Lifted aromas of cassis, cedar and dried herbs.
Taste: Complex flavours of wild strawberries layered with earthy forest floor notes with a vibrant line of acidity that carries the chewy, burnt caramel tannin structure to an even, balanced finish.
