Cabernet Franc from Robe located approx. 120 kms from Mount Gambier on the coast with a mix of red terra rossa and sandy soils over shallow limestone.
The Franc is partly carbonic macerated and partly de-stemmed and then left on skins until desired fruit flavours are reached (approx. 10 days). Pressed off stored in old oak on lees. This variety is late picked, cold soaked naturally and fermented long and slowly in our cool climate winery. After 8 months the wines were racked and minimal sulphur added at bottling.
Mount Gambier is about equidistant between Melbourne and Adelaide, sitting on a Dormant Volcano. Its soils are a combo of Volcanic and Limestone (Also known as, Australian Coastal). Gambier isn’t a huge region, but those who do grow their grow Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Pinot Noir. Good Intentions has well…Good Intentions with these varietals. An amazing partnership of the husband and Wife team of a farmer and a Musician. Their wines are super vibrant in both colour and flavour. They truly represent the future of accessible minimal intervention wines.
