ALLER TROP LOIN - CABERNET FRANC 2019
Aromatics of red fruits and blue fruit flowers with flavours of ripe red fruits, blueberries, blue plums and hints of black fruits. A silky, vibrant, juicy and beautifully structured example of this fascinating varietal.
More hipster than a mixologist with a neck tattoo, riding a fixie in Billyburg whilst wearing a hula hoop as a necklace!
Crafted from fruit from a low yielding, high altitude upper Yarra Valley vineyards. 75% of the fruit went through whole berry fermentation and 25% went through carbonic maceration.
ORIGIN Yarra Valley, Victoria
MAKER Aller Trop Loin
GRAPES Cabernet Franc
aller trop loin is the cheeky sister label of Six Parallels South.
Inspired by an errant footstep that went too far and ‘de-koshered’ a wine during Six Parallels South’s first vintage, winemaker Mark Sztar decided to use some good old fashioned chutzpah and put a pig (the most non-kosher thing there is…) on the wine’s label, so there was no doubt as to its non-kosher status! After the said wine, a Yarra Valley Chardonnay, sold out in two months, he began to think this may be a ‘silk purse from a sow’s ear’ moment and quickly set about finding some other varieties to make more ‘swine wine’ next vintage.
