What used to be the Oldfield Series, is now Oldfield Reserve. It comes with a new label look, and the change (label colour/design and name) is not depicted in the attached photo. Cabernet Franc is one of Tinhorn's flagship wines, and new winemaker Andrew Windsor (since 2014) has continued Sandra Oldfield's work, continuously striving to make it better.

Overall, structure and balance are rooted firmly in this wine, and it has a lengthy finish.See detailed press review
