Brash Higgins FRNC Cabernet Franc 2020
|Australia, South Australia, McLaren Vale
This is a straightforward but quite pretty Cab Franc from a small-batch, natural-leaning producer. Ripe red and black fruit lead on the nose, backed by gentle notes of ground white pepper, florals and an umami-like tang. The palate is medium weight with powerful, somewhat pinching tannins, silky fruit, lifted acidity and a short finish.
