Happs Three Hills 2018 Cabernet Franc

Three Hills 2018 Cabernet Franc

Cabernet Franc is the ‘other Cabernet’ that you may hear less about, but it’s one tasty variety! It’s quite often blended in a Bordeaux style red blend, however it’s also vinified on its own like this Three Hills 2018 from Happs Wines in WA’s Margaret River region.

I received this one as a free gift (thank you!!). It retails for $38 and only 70 dozen have been produced. The grapes were handpicked and the wine was aged in one-year old French oak on lees for 9 months prior to being bottled.

We found it a juicy ruby red colour in the glass with a wonderful aroma of fresh blackberries, raspberries, a hint of pepper and earthiness. Those berries and savouriness flow through to the mouth with soft tannins. Super consumable.

This wine was sent to me as a sample, I was under no obligation to post about it.

All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy!

Grab a glass of wine and let me know what you think...
