Borachio Cabernet Franc 2021
Mark & Alicia traded in the big city life in Sydney to move down to the Adelaide Hills where they worked under natural wine icon, James Erskine of Jauma. It wasn't long before they started producing their own stuff and every year we are astounded at how much they progress.
Notes from Mark & Alicia:
Our friend Lisanne (Boaz, Sonshine, De Sonnettes), pre-COVID worked with Lulu’s Cab Franc, since then we have been fortunate enough to slide in and make some wine from it. Old vines on sand with one of the best vistas in Blewitt Springs. 100% carbonic for 2 weeks, keeping things feather weight, whilst enhancing all that beguiling blue fruit Franc holds. Finishes with a bees dick of Franc-y rusticity that dissipates in time, whilst retaining strong varietal character.
