Mt Mary is considered one of Australia’s iconic small wineries. The winery was established by Dr John Middleton in 1972 and since the first vintage in 1976, it has established itself as one of Australia’s most highly regarded producers, commanding a mythical status among wine collectors.
In 2017 Mt Mary released a straight Cabernet Franc instead of blending into their iconic, Quintet. The result is a delicious mid-weightwine and remarkable value considering the pedigree.
Cabernet Franc is grown in pockets throughout Australia and can produce refined, elegant reds, especially in comparison to the more boisterous Australian Cabernet Sauvignons.
“Black jellybean, menthol, hedgerow, blackcurrant and raspberry. Medium-bodied, juicy burst but with black olive and pencil/earth savouries, buoyant, fresh, complex, dusty emery tannin, and a long and briary finish. Such a great drink” 95 Points The Wine Front
