Heaps Good Wine Co Zweigelt/Modra Frankinja 2018
$ 62.00 incl. GST
Fully destemmed, cold macerated for 4-7 days, pressed to tank with 16-24 days on skins and racked to older French barrels, just under a year in oak.
Medium purple in colour. Rustic and smoky aromas blend with bright fruit to create a complex aromatic profile. On the palate bright cassis flavours mix with black cherry. Soft and velvety tannins with a lifting tart and clean finish.
“Sour cherry, a little smoky paprika note, walnut/hazelnut savouriness and blood orange acidity. Sweet-sour kind of feel, good bright flavour profile, light fuzz to tannins and a sizzling, tart acidity finish keeping things perky. Bright, crunchy red territory here, done well.” 91 points, Mike Bennie, Winefront
