2019 Cabernet Franc

$24.95

TASTING NOTES

Complex on the nose with aromas of blackberries, liquorice and notes of smoke. The palate is fresh and lively with flavours of red currants, spice and smoke with balancing acidity and ripe yet grippy tannins enveloping the juicy mid-palate on the savory warm finish. Enjoy on release with roasted red meats or pastas with rich, savory sauce. Decant to give the wine a chance to soften with air or cellar for the medium-term.

WINEMAKING NOTES

Sourced exclusively from our June’s Vineyard in the Creek Shores sub-appellation, our Cabernet Franc 2018 was harvested in late-October after a warm summer and wet early fall. The grapes were sorted on shaker tables to ensure perfect quality. After crushing and de-stemming the must and skins were moved to stainless steel fermenters where the primary fermentation took place over 3 weeks with pump-overs for colour and flavor extraction. After pressing, malolactic fermentation was completed in tank where the wine was kept until bottling in August 2019 following a light fining and filtration.
