2014 Jamsheed 'Harem Ma Petite Francine' Cabernet Franc

Image of 2014 Ma Petite FrancineAll of the fruit for this wine was sourced from a single vineyard in the Yarra Valley. It was fermented in whole bunches with wild yeast and no additions, outside of a small amount of sulfur dioxide.

Herbal aromatics with plenty of fresh fruit and savory complexity. Lacking the pencil shaving character I tend to associate with this varietal, but not missed here. Carries juicy soft palate, with moderate length and more fresh dark berry fruit character.

A light and easy style that is very food friendly. A good one to chill down slightly if your craving a cooler glass of red for the warmer summer months.

2013 Jamsheed 'Pyren' Syrah

Fruit from the Pyren Vineyard, in the Pyrenese Vally, Victoria underwent 100% whole bunch fermentation with wild yeast and a 40 day maceration, before spending 10 months in puncheons. The wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered. A superb Syrah, showing how well suited this grape is to this region.

Pours a dark crimson color with heady aromas of rich red berries, dried herbs, and hints of wet stone. The large percentage of whole bunch really works here and is well balanced with the dark fruit. Fantastic length and tannin structure. Great development in the glass. I'm smitten.

Price:      RRP $58
