Rising Cabernet Franc 2020 12.5% 750ml

Half the hand-picked fruit was destemmed to line the bottom of a single open pot fermenter, the other half was tipped on top as whole bunches. The pot was then gassed and wrapped and left for 10 days. Pressed to stainless steel tank to complete sugar fermentation before transfer to two old 225L French oak barriques for malo-lactic fermentation and seven months maturation on lees.  A small sulphur add prior to bottling to maintain freshness. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.

From the rolling elevations at the Rising Vineyard in the Christmas Hills, winemaker Anthony Fikkers crafts wines that express both the power and grace of this unique part of the Yarra Valley. Sourcing small premium parcels of fruit from emerging varietals in the vineyard, Anthony's aim is to produce wines of beauty and clarity that are surprising yet authentic. Free and unrestricted in his winemaking approach and with a philosophy of minimal intervention, each wine is allowed to express fully its origins.
