2018 Bark Hut Road

One of the first wines Jacques' released from The Islander Estate, this 2018 Shiraz Cabernet Franc blend continues a long tradition of excellence. This elegant Bordeaux-style blend offers firm tannins, natural acidity, beautiful blackberry and sarsaparilla notes at the darker end of the fruit spectrum with Oak notes – vanilla and coconut. It will age beautifully – up to 10 years and beyond.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
70% cabernet franc, 30% shiraz, wild-fermented, some whole bunches. Deep colour; unashamedly full-bodied, with velvety black fruits, the depth seeming to come from the shiraz licorice and tar. Not for us to argue - it is what it is. And beyond doubt decades away from its use-by date. Halliday Wine Companion 2020
