Askerne Hawke's Bay Cabernet Franc (2018)

Priced well, the 2018 vintage (4*) was estate-grown and matured for a year in French oak casks (30 per cent new). Full-coloured, it is fragrant, with a fresh bouquet of berries, herbs and spices. Mouthfilling, with good concentration, complexity and structure, it's a youthful wine, likely to be at its best 2022+.
