Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Deep ruby hue. Vibrant aromas of black current, blueberry, black tea leaf, tomato leaf and red pepper. Juicy flavours of dark forest fruits, blackberry and black boy peach give way to supple clay derived tannins. A salty mineral finish, typical of the Home Vineyard, gives the wine a satisfying lingering finish. Un- fined and unfiltered. Use your decanter. Drink now to 2022.

The 2016 Black Estate Home Cabernet Franc was grown on our Home Vineyard located 6 kilometres north east of the Waipara Junction, in the Omihi sub-district of Waipara Valley, North Canterbury. This is a north facing sedimentary clay fan on a gentle hill side slope. The soils are mainly Awapuni clay with calcium carbonate deposits. The Cabernet Franc vineyard that sits in the belly of the slope above the original vineyard is 0.3 hectares. Cabernet Franc clones 214, 327, and 678 grow on root stock and were planted at 6133 vines per hectare in 2011 by the Naish Family. The Home Vineyard became fully certified organic with BioGro in March 2017."
