RILEY HARRISON CABERNET FRANC 2020

MCLAREN VALE, SOUTH AUSTRALIA
PEPPERS BRIGHT SPRING
LEFT OF CENTRE / 750ML

Beach wine - light, bright, chillable and easy going. Bright tamarillo, subtle green pepper and a whole lot of sunshine. 

Cabernet Franc from a vineyard conveniently located quite close to the Victory Hotel. These vines are cooled by the sea breeze & fuelled by the summer sunshine. 10% carbonic maceration and 90% straight up and down. Bright red fruits, fresh-cut chilli and the kiss of a man splitting firewood. This is spring luncheon wine if ever it did exist.

Harrison Wines defy convention - the convention and constraint of a nine-five job led Riley Harrison to seek a creative outlet, and in 2015, with a humble tonne of Grenache, this vision became a bottled reality.

In pursuit of perfume, texture, and drinkability, Riley crossed regional boundaries to secure small parcels of fruit from vineyards in the Adelaide Hills, McLaren Vale and Barossa Valley.

With an emphasis firmly on fruit quality and varietal expression, Riley’s winemaking style weaves between the lines of conventional and minimal-intervention.

“Minimal intervention winemaking can be divisive and can focus too much on the minimalist process, rather than the outcome of the final wine. Strangely, doing less requires far greater attention to detail in the winery. It's the complex interaction of science, creativity and environment in a bid to generate flavour that I find intoxicating"

The resulting creatively charged wines are the outlet Riley was searching for. Harrison Wines has been an exploratory journey into the world of aromatic excitement and textural pleasure.

He won’t be returning to the nine-five anytime soon.
