Dancing Petrel - 2019 Cabernet Franc - 750ml - Mangonui, New Zealand
Celebrating Cabernet France this full bodied, deeply coloured wine is rich with black currants, raspberry and plums. Matured and smoothly integrated in French Oak with a lingering finish. Gently flirtacious.
Likely to be long-lived, this Northland red was hand-harvested and matured in French oak casks (30% new). Deeply coloured, it is fragrant and mouthfilling, with concentrated, ripe, youthful flavours of plums and spices, a hint of herbs, good complexity and a well-structured finish. Best drinking 2023+.
