2019 Combes 'De Franc' Yarra Cabernet Franc

Yarra Valley, Victoria

Everything you expect from a Cab Franc and more. From a small parcel in the Chirnside Vineyard the vines were planted in the late 80's and grapes 100% whole bunch pressed. Oscar points us the green herbs, bright purple fruit with beautiful fine tannins. Laced with a silky texture. We get strong Ribena black-currant fruit vibes. Easy winter red. Yum.

About the maker

From humble beginnings in Melbourne's City Wine Shop, Oscar Hermann has always enjoyed site driven wines from both the new and old worlds.

Oscar's brother, Kaspar, also has wine running through his veins, now the head winemaker at Rochford. Having joined in for a couple of vintages with Kaspar, Oscar decided it was time to make something of his own. With fruit sourced predominantly around the Yarra, the wines are always a sensory experience of place. The wines never lack detail, character and are already regarded highly by many in the industry, but at the same time they're all very very drinkable. As of late, Oscar has just signed a lease on a vineyard in St Andrew with plantings dating back to 1995. Watch his space!
