Askerne Hawke's Bay Cabernet Franc (2021)

Estate-grown, the refined 2021 vintage (4.5*) was matured for a year in French oak barriques (25 per cent new). An elegant, very ageworthy red, it is full-coloured, with mouthfilling body, generous blackcurrant, red berry and spice flavours, and ripe, supple tannins. Already enjoyable, it should be at its best 2024+.
