2014 Lavina Elicere Cabernet Franc McLaren Vale
The Elicere range features wines that display great elegance and finesse. These wines have been fastidiously crafted and styled to be sumptuous and expressive yet exquisite and refined. Fruit of the highest quality was carefully selected to produce wines that are a beautiful definition of the terroir of the region. Powerful but not too dominating the wines are perfectly balanced and restrained making them an excellent choice for pairing with any fine cuisine.
An intriguing lifted bouquet of blueberries, mint, sage and caraway seed that layer with undertones of herbal tobacco leaf and subtle Asian spice.
The 2014 Cabernet Franc is varietal expressive with juniper berries, sage and mint with supporting undertones of patchouli and subtle French oak. The texture is svelte and soft with sweet oak tannin integration that seamlessly marries with natural acids leading to a delightfully pleasant and lingering finish.
Luscious and lively in its youth, this wine will continue to develop in complexity for 10 years. Store wine lying down at a constant temperature of 15-18 Degree Celsius. Decanting is recommended to open up the flavours and enhance the full appreciation of the wine.
