2014 Cabernet Franc
Prepare yourself for a deep, brooding, nutty bouquet from this long barrel aged Cabernet Franc. Rich, reduced flavours and aromas of spiced stewed plums, almonds, tamarind and pomelo zest give it a depth and a kick, with gentle cedar notes. Cabernet Franc is a great choice with lamb, beef and goat cheese.

2013 Portànce$ 44.00
Portànce is a name we came up with for our new Port style wine, in line with our trade names “Alliànce” and “Referènce”. This is a Vintage Port-style wine, fortified with brandy that was distilled from Blackwood Lane wine. Our fortified 2013 Merlot was aged in a fine French oak barrel for two and a half years. It has a soft and sensuous mouthfeel that delivers a rich impact of mixed berry flavours from the mid-palate to the finish. Sophisticated flavours of sweet black cherries, raspberries, plums, vanilla, and tamarind. You can cellar Portànce for years or enjoy it now after dinner with a savoury blue cheese, aged cheddar, cheesecake or dark chocolate.
