Doll Face “Short Memories” Cab Franc / Pinot Noir 2018


This is only our second attempt at blending Cabernet Franc and Pinot Noir – varieties of similar character that favour Orange’s cooler climate.The Pinot Noir was hand-picked from Heifer Station vineyard (900m, basalt over a limestone subsoil) and the Cabernet Franc was harvested from Annangrove Park vineyard (750m, red podzolic soil). The fruit was then predominantly destemmed, fermented and hand-plunged in open-top containers, pressed into old French oak hogsheads and aged for 10 months. The resulting blend, an even 50/50 split, was bottled without fining and filtration, so a natural sediment may occur.

More Information

Donovan Boxall is the man behind the wines. His time spent making wines in Orange, NSW led him to some premium vineyard sites that could provide him with tiny amounts of fruit. Tiny is right, he only makes a few hundred cases each vintage and in 2018 he managed to procure enough fruit to make three different wines.
