Howard Vineyard Clover Cabernet Franc Rose

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

A really pretty Rose this with its perfumed yet restrained red fruits with a little herb and spice for interest. In the mouth, there is some balanced sweetness but never overtakes the moreish fruit. A very proper Rose.

Winemaker's Notes

This soft, crimson pink wine is made from 100% Cabernet Franc fruit and is made in the traditional French saignée method. Awarded 93 points by James Halliday, the wine displays elegant aromas of violets, strawberries and cherries. The complex palate has layers of raspberries, spice, strawberries and cream and finishes with crisp, balanced acidity. Our winemaker Tom’s drink of choice in Summer!

James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
Bright puce; an attractive strawberry and raspberry fruit bouquet, the palate following on precisely in tune; excellent acidity provides freshness to the dry finish.

Nick Stock (2010 Vintage) says
Cabernet franc does the pink thing better than most red grapes, and here it has beautifully lifted red-berry fruit aromas, strawberries and raspberries. The palate's textural and smooth, with assertive, crunchy red-fruit flavour. Very nicely balanced and quite concentrated.
