Background

Cabernet Franc has generally been planted in Australia with the intention of blending with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot to emulate the red wines of Bordeaux. In certain regions, however, the Australian climate has produced fruit with enough flavour to make a terrific wine on its own. The Vasarelli Vineyard is one such spot, and this wine is a lovely example of the variety.

A handling fee of $1.20 per case (metro) or $1.40 per case (regional) will apply to your order.
