2015 Cabernet Franc
This wine represents classic cool-climate Cabernet Franc. Red berry fruit, balanced structure and focused varietal character. Well suited to our site and the region as it is an ideal food pairing wine.
Colour is ruby to garnet. Bright aromas of red berry fruit, cigar box and savoury spice with an herbaceous undertone. On the palate the wine is soft and supple with a juicy core feel. Flavours of strawberry, savoury pepper and baking spice are backed with nicely structured acidity. Polished tannins lead to a medium+ finish.
2017 Cabernet Franc
This Cab Franc is a ruby-garnet colour. It has bright aromas of cranberry, fresh thyme, and ground coffee. It is a medium-bodied wine. It has slightly drying tannins that make this wine great with food.
Winemaking Notes:This wine was aged in older French oak barrels (Neutral Oak) that adds to the mouthfeel and helps to soften tannins, instead of adding flavour. Although the tannins are still slightly drying, they have softened a fair bit and will continue to round as this wine ages.
Food Pairing:A great match for this wine would be an aged cheddar cheese. The angular side of the wine goes well with the sharp taste of the cheese.
