Three Elms Timbertops Frankland River Cabernet Franc 2022


Aussie winemakers seem to be getting a handle on this variety, and not just as a blending component. But they have to ensure that the fruit comes from a suitable region and Frankland River seems just that. The colour here is a crimson/purple, blueberries dominate, along with notes of florals, soy and licorice but it is those bright blueberries which stand out here. An appealingly supple texture with fine tannins, good length and impressive balance. Lots to like here but it is the bright fruit flavours which are to the fore. A wine of joy, this will surely drink well for at least the next six to eight years but it is delicious now. Love it.
