04 Jul Smart Emily – The Real Review
2017 ‘Emily’ Cabernet Franc Merlot
“From the Woodlands Brook vineyard, this is coloured deep purple/red and smells rich and powerfully of dark fruits, violets and spices, plus a hint of cedar. It’s fully ripe: herbal notes are minor. Medium to full-body, intense as well as elegant. A very smart wine and good value.” – Huon Hooke.
