2014 Beach House Cabernet Franc

Gold Medals g1 Trophy t1

Description

Beach House have had a charmed run at the wine shows of late, this Cabernet Franc joining the Cabernet Malbec in winning a Champion Trophy. Many commentators regard this Cabernet Franc as the finest one in the country, and after tasting this rich, velvety and fragrant example, it's hard to find the strength to argue.

Smells

Lifted violet florals, cassis, cedar, plum, tobacco and dark chocolate.

Tastes

Richly layered and very silky, but with a surprising and well concealed structure that assures you it will cellar well too. A beautiful example of a grape that doesn't often headline in New Zealand, Beach House Cabernet Franc will be at its best between 2017 and 2026.
