Jamsheed Apricity Cabernet Franc 2021
Apricity - means 'The Warmth of the Winter Sun' - and these pretty, exuberant and thirst-quenching wines do offer much chilled sunshine, enveloped in the psychedelic artworks of Mikaela Stafford's labels.
Cab Franc from Dixon's vineyard in the Yarra, half carbonic, left on lees and what not for six months. There is nothing cooler than a varietally-correct cab franc, it is an underdog of a red grape in these parts, perhaps from mishandling in the past. But here Gary delivers up a crunchy, refreshing and perfectly balanced herbal wine. Bravo.
Grape: Cabernet Franc
Region: Yarra Valley
