2020 Wismer Cabernet Franc INSIDERS
100% Cabernet Franc
Aromas of black raspberry, plum, baked blueberry and elderberry, spiced by cinnamon and violet, invite the nose to a long, pensive draw.
The mouthfeel is luscious and intense.
Dark fruit flavours with cherry, raisin and cocoa translate to the palate, trailing to a toasty, spicy, herbal finish.
Picked at the Wismer Vineyard October 13th as grape sugars averaged 24.1° Brix.
Freshly picked grapes were destemmed before primary fermentation in two large oak cuves. After, 12% of the wine drained to new French oak puncheons and the rest to more neutral (2nd – 6th use) French oak barriques. The whole was blended back into mature barrels to age for an additional 3 months before bottling in December 2021.
At the time of bottling, alcohol measured 13.5%; Residual Sugar 0 g; Titratable Acidity 7.2 grams per litre; pH 3.45
Dry: 0 g residual sugar
