Fragrant, savoury, distinct.
What used to be the Oldfield Series, is now Oldfield Reserve
It comes with a new label look, and the change (label colour/design and name) is not depicted in the attached photo.
Cabernet Franc is one of Tinhorn's flagship wines, and new winemaker Andrew Windsor (since 2014) has continued Sandra Oldfield's work, continuously striving to make it better.
Expect fragrant aromas of blueberry compote, wild currents, violets and woodsy aromas alongside mocha, cherry cola and dried sage. The palate is savoury; fleur de sel and dried herbs, peppery spices and dark mocha flavours roll into distinct tealeaf notes. Overall, structure and balance are rooted firmly in this wine, and it has a lengthy finish.
Pair:hearty pastas with tomato ragu, game meats or bean chili.
Pairs great with Gone Crackers Blue Cheese & Cracked Pepper
