Why is this Wine so Yummy?
Notes from Franco:
Spends 6 months longer in oak than the standard label, has approx 35% new oak with firm tannin, bright floral and red berry nose.
In the winery, this has the same treatment as the Estate Pinot Noir except for the inclusion of twenty per cent whole bunches. This makes the tannins a little more finer and gives structure to the wine for further aging. The wine spends eighteen months in cask. The wine is not filtered, not fined, or stabilized before bottling.
