2009 Founders Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
Bob and Sylvia Franchitto; both first generation Australians descended from Southern European families, jointly founded their grape growing and winemaking enterprise in 1998. Thereby was brought together over a century of proud agricultural and farming heritage.
Today this company stands as a leader in the production of the highest quality wines – reflecting the most modern techniques and ancient ancestral traditions.
This Founders’ Reserve wine represents the pinnacle of their achievements. This is a wine to enjoy and savour, as you explore the depths of its rich and full character.
This full bodied wine exhibits profound dark berry fruits with menthol overtones and cedary oak characters. These qualities are reinforced by a smooth, mouth filling palate with velvety tannins and a lingering vanilla oak complexity. While ready to drink now, this wine will amply reward careful cellaring.
