The fruit comes from ‘Robert Surmann’s Vineyard’ is in Totness and has Black Sandy soil on petrified schist, it is V.S.P. Trained and spur pruned. We converted Rob’s farm to organic 8 years ago and now the vineyard is enlivened and amazing. This Cab Franc is made with 100% whole bunch carbonic fermented for 10 days. Then pressed to 500L barrels and aged (the wine is made of the free-run component only). This is a rustic variety with deep rich vibrant colour. The briar juices pour over shaved I on a warm summer day, and the sweet smell of picking brambles and boysenberries and tasting them fresh. The delectable dark red juice coating your mouth while its acidity explodes fresh earthy tannin plucking goosebumps onto your tongue – Lucy M
