2021 Dynamique Cabernet Franc

Cabernet Franc
Adelaide Hills, SA

New juice from the legendary Basket Range wildman Anton Van Klopper. In Anton's own words, this Cab Franc is like a wicker basket full of blackcurrants and white mulberries at a countryside store. How can such a light ruby red liquid be so sinuous and sumptuous? Finishes with a side of Danish salty liquorice. Dynamique!

The fruit is from Robert Surmann’s vineyard in Totness with 30 y/o vines grown on Black Sandy soil overlying petrified schist. It was 100% whole-bunch carbonic fermented for four days, then pressed to 3000L inox, where it also matured before bottling. No additions, as always.
