Little Ra Ra Franc 2015
The '15 Little Ra Ra Franc is composed of two parcels. The first being a whole bunch carbonic maceration ferment and the other a hand plunged open ferment with lots of whole berry integrity. The whole bunch component was pressed to stainless and the open ferment pressed to old French Hogsheads. Blended with 14% estate grown Shiraz prior to filtration and bottling in Feb '16
Cabernet Franc for this wine is harvested from Block D. Some of the fruit from this site will be harvested in a field blend for the Yardbird Union release, with the balance going towards the Ra Ra Franc. It's an aromatic delight when harvested and highly anticipated in the winery each harvest.
