2020 Adelina Cabernet Franc Clare Valley – Nestled up against Wendouree and Aberfeldy, and originally planted in the early 1900s, Springfarm is one of the Clare’s oldest vineyards. Today it is finally well on its way to becoming one of its most significant. Last year – eight years after beginning the transition to organics – Col McBryde and Jen Gardner achieved the official paperwork for their vineyard.
Each vine can be visited anywhere from eight to 12 times a growing season: for pruning, tying down, shoot-thinning, hoeing, fruit-thinning and then hand-picking. This kind of diligence and endeavour has given the Springfarm vineyard a new lease of life and saw it rightly nominated as a finalist for the Young Gun of Wine’s 2021 Vineyard of the Year.
This wine is now sourced from their very own 100% certified organic vineyard. The fruit is hand-picked, destemmed and crushed. Fermented on skins for 4 days before pressing. Pressed and racked once post malo, 6 months in neutral French barrique. Only 600 bottles made! This release sees a small ammount of added Sulphur.
A fresh, juicy style of Cabernet Franc here. Medium bodied, red berry goodness, herbal notes, dusting of pepper and spice. A real berry party going on here, mainly red with a small mix of darker. Sensational tannins – soft and silky. Just an all-round awesome wine.
Fresh, light and ready to delight!
