The 2017 'Rapszodia' is an absolutely brilliant showing in this vintage. Composed of 100% Cabernet Franc this instantly begins to impress with its striking aromas of blackcurrants and cassis that are woven together with pencil lead, tobacco, charcoal, spring flowers, dusty minerals, wet rocks and spices that all come together and emerge from the glass. On the palate this is just as impressive, boasting a medium to full body that is impeccably structured with beautifully polished tannins and a wonderful core of fresh ripe dark fruits that expand seamlessly through the wine. It goes on to offer a mouthful of delicious fruit that continues to resonate through the finish, as mineral, spice and tobacco nuances continue to linger effortlessly. This is such a fascinating bottle of Cabernet Franc that puts on a masterful display of refinement, structure and purity as it also highlights the amazing characteristics this varietal can offer.
