Cabernet Franc
McLaren Vale

100% Cabernet Franc from 25 year old vines near Sellicks Hill in the Seaview district of McLaren Vale. The label says 'Barossa' but lies, all lies :)

The grapes are harvested at premium ripeness, destemmed and naturally fermented on skins for 10 days. They are then pressed straight to old, large format oak casks and left to age for 6 months before hand bottling. Zero additives.

This is a ripe and juicy expression of Cabernet Franc. Winemaker Dave Geyer lets the characters of the site shine. Ripe mulberries, red and black currant and tomato leaf are dominant on the nose. Take a sip and discover a plump and friendly wine with playful tannins. A pure joy to drink.

BAROSSA VALLEY

After a childhood in the Barossa Valley, Dave found himself working in the vineyards of Torbreck in 2002. This sparked his interest in all things viticulture and preceded a 7 year stint in the winery. Given an opportunity to travel for vintage to the US in 2007, the goal of one day producing his own wines was cemented. A trial run ensued in 2009 where he and his brother worked to develop ‘Geyer Brothers’. Learn More »
