This product is currently sold out.
Variety // Cabernet Franc
Region // Basket Range, Adelaide Hills
A rustic Cab Franc with deep, vibrant hue, expressing all the ‘bs’ – briar, brambles, boysenberry, plus some forest floor undergrowth. Anton Van Klopper is a legend in the world of natural wine. His wines keep you guessing and turn your expectations on their heads. This is Cabernet Franc, but in a whole new sense. Still pretty and perfumed and juicy, but wild and a little bit of a chin-stroking thought-provoker. Zero chemicals in the vineyard; zero additions in the winery. Jasper Button – another big name in natty wine – was intending to graft Gamay onto some established vines in the Basket Range, but come picking time, he and Anton noticed it looked, smelled and tasted a whole lot like Cab Franc. What a happy accident!
