2021 Half Tonne Heroes Cabernet Franc


roasted red pepper  |  earthy  |  red fruits |  savoury


Widely regarded as one of the best Yarra Valley vintages in decades, 2021 was cool which allowed the slow, ideal ripening for almost all varieties. Both the Upper and Lower Yarra Valley have produced perfumed fruit with fine lined acidity, ideal for current consumption and cellaring.
