Shiraz / Cabernet Franc (1986)
Time of release
Identical colour and depth to Georgia’s, but here the similarity ceases. Herbaceous aroma, more pronounced than usual for Emily’s. Fruit well balanced with high acid and tannins. Possibly a little more forward than previous releases but a few years cellaring is still desirable. Generally available at cellar door only.
