Granite Hills Cabernet Franc 2017, Macedon Ranges, Victoria

by | Jan 26, 2022

Floral, redcurrants and a hint of oaky smoke on the nose. Light and zesty acidity with red fruit flavours. Fine dry tannins on the finish. Overall a gentle wine making it ideal for the table. Similar to a Chinon. 10% Merlot. Granite Hills entire range is excellent value for money.

Ratings Key:

Outstanding (Score range 95-100)

Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.

Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)

A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.

Recommended (Score range 89-91)

An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
