Two years of barrel aging in French Oak.
Cabernet Franc, parent to both Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, is a varietal ideally suited to our cool climate.
In its new state-of-the-art Appassimento facility, Vieni brings this ancient practice to our breezy hills, which are perfect for the creation of Appassito Dulcis.
Cellared for over twelve months in French Oak, the result is a soft full-bodied wine with powerful aromas of ripe fruit and hints of pineapple, banana and apple as well as vanilla & candied fruit.
Ruby red with garnet reflections: rich with fruit – blackberry and blueberry, with hints of hints of spice and tobacco. Supply and warm with a lingering chocolate finish.
This vintage was cellared in French Oak for 18 months and the resulting wine heralded Vieni Estate's first Pinot Noir Reserve.
The premier wine of the collection
