2013 Estate Colbert Cabernet Franc/750ml
Don’t miss the final red release from Ann Sperling’s 2013 Barrel Series. Hand-harvested, naturally fermented and carefully aged for maximum pleasure. Our cooper Nadalie christened a line of barrels “Colbert”, in honour of the French minister whose edict protected forests across the country. Now with over 2 years of bottle age, in addition to the 18 months in barrel, this wine is showing lovely integration of fruit and structure, especially the smooth grape and wood tannins. Hard to resist now, but will develop for at least another decade in your cellar.
