Thomas Legacy Waiheke Island Cabernet Franc (2019)

The refined 2019 vintage (5*) was hand-picked and matured for 11 months in French oak barriques (33 per cent new). A fragrant, deeply coloured, full-bodied red, it has strong, ripe blackcurrant, red berry, plum and spice flavours, savoury notes adding complexity, and a finely textured, lingering finish. Already delicious, it should be at its best 2024+. (From Batch Winery).
