This Gold Medal winning VOC bottle is 100% Frankovka (Blaufränkish). It was matured for 20 months in small and large oak barrels, balancing the wine with a round finish. The taste of dried cherries is evident and shows the true characteristic of Frankovka from the Blue Mountains where the grapes are grown.
