2017 Half Tonne Heroes Cabernet Franc


violets  |  dark plum  |  prune  |  dusty tannins


Vintage 2017 saw a return to classic Yarra Valley growing conditions.  A cool, wet spring resulted in a later start to harvest.  Some truly ideal weather followed with three to four weeks of blue skies and temperatures in the high 20s with no heat spikes.  The even temperatures, cool nights and long ripening period provided us with some excellent fruit across all varieties. A stellar vintage.
