The Boneline, Amphitheatre Waipara Cabernet Franc (2019)

The highly impressive 2019 vintage (5*) was hand-harvested from estate-grown, 30 year-old vines and matured in French oak casks (16 per cent new). Deeply coloured, it is fragrant and full-bodied, with highly concentrated, ripe, plummy, spicy flavours, oak complexity, supple tannins, and the density and structure to mature well over the long haul. Best drinking 2024+. (The 2016, 2018 and 2019 vintages have all been of eye-catching quality.)
