2020 Riley Harrison 'Vento do Mar' Cabernet Franc

McLaren Vale, South Australia

Riley is making some pretty aromatic and textural bombs rn. Cabernet franc from a vineyard that he notes is conveniently located close to the Victory Hotel. Sea breeze during the day keeps things cool, but still big McLaren sun there. 10% carbonic maceration. 'Bright red fruits, fresh cut chilli and the kiss of a man splitting firewood. This is spring luncheon wine if ever it did exist.'

About the maker

To break the mundanity of his nine-five job, Riley Harrison sought a new 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. 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 a 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".
