The inclusion of Cabernet Franc fulfills a long time ambition to, fashion Ribbon Vale in the style of the great right bank wines of Bordeaux. Delicious drinking now, for those who prefer the plump young flavours of Medoc in its youth.

Fruit is hand picked and de stemmed into small, open fermenters. Inoculated to a pure yeast culture and vinified at controlled temperatures peaking at 28°C. Each batch is hand plunged thrice daily over the course of a fortnight, regularly tasted to ensure good extraction of flavour and tannin. As fermentation progresses, the treatment of varietal components begins to vary, batches are pressed at varying stages of completion, drained and treated to malolactic. Parcels are filled to a combination of seasoned and new 225 litre French oak barriques, racked and assembled in late summer, followed by an extended term of maturation and unfined bottling.
Deep brick red hue. Concentrated Cabernet fruit aromas of red currant, leather and cedar, complemented by fragrant notes of violets and rose. The Merlot adds mulberry and dark fruit, oak age adds complexity, charry and tarry characters. Generous red and dark fruit flavours give the wine a rich mid palate and good length. Smooth texture, displaying the exceptional balance which is the hallmark of Ribbon Vale.
