Las Higueras Vineyard
Maule Valley
Cabernet Franc

In a Nutshell
We have made Las Higueras Cab Franc since 2013. It was sourced from a corner of a larger 8 hectares vineyard of 1oo+ year old Cab Franc. In this particular corner the cables and posts of the rows had mostly fallen down (the owners had used these bits to repair the structure in the rest of the vineyard) As we saw it, these two little hectares had returned to their natural state in nature ie old bush head vines! Old bush-head vine Cab Franc.

House note
Rare bush-head vine Cabernet Franc, shows classic herbal aromas and a leafy, spicy personality with notes of graphite, cut grass (tomato leaf) backed up by fine, well integrated tannins and proper supporting acidity. Lighter in colour with surprising density and layers. Atypical new-world Cab Franc: balanced and expressive with 12,8 % alc. The difference proper farming makes.

The fruit is what centres everything but the hands that farm and bring in the fruit are the heroes — and there are never enough of them #gwcolashiguerasvineyard

Acacia is wonderful wood for posts which we like because we can use it untreated but sometimes when it is green and rain falls and well … … it puts up a wee fight before it is satisfied to settle in being but a post. #gwcolashiguerasvineyard ...
