Hickinbotham 2017 The Nest Cabernet Franc (McLaren Vale)

This is the first vintage of Hickinbotham Cab Franc, planted by American Winemaker Chris Carpenter. McLaren Vale's Mediterranean climate and the use of quite a lot of new French oak gives this a riper feel. A perfume of ripe red and blueberry fruit is backed by savory, earthy nuances, green herbs and a blanket of highly polished, mocha-like barrel influence. There's a tangy lift to the fruit, with textural, granular tannins. Drink 2021–2030. Christina Pickard
