Warwick Cabernet Franc 2016 / 2019
The wine has a deep and intense garnet colour. The nose is dominated by a milky creaminess that is complexed by aromas of almonds, chocolate and pencil shavings. The palate is full round with ripe chewy tannins and flavours like coffee, cherry, cigar box and liquorice. Its balanced acid creates a firm finish that is complemented by luscious and lingering sweetness.
Serving temperature: 16-18*C
