Other Info:
The grapes are harvested from 'old vines' (35
years) sourced from the single biggest Cabernet
Franc vineyard in the world located in Lodi, Central
California.
To enable the true flavours and characters of the
Cabernet Franc (and touch of Cabernet Sauvignon)
to shine through, no wood/oak has been used.

A smooth, medium bodied and easy drinking wine that strikes a lovely balance with its blackberry, plum and dark cherry fruit characters coupled with classic leafy tones.

Press:

The Times, 29th November 2014.

Food match:

This is is a food wine that really lends itself to

vegetarian dishes. Try it with grilled egglpant or

zucchini, or with meals containing green peppers

(capsicums), cabbage, or herbs (particularly sage,

thyme, rosemary or saffron).

A versatile wine that is also fantastic with tomato

based dishes; lighter meats such as Turkey or

Chicken, along with game meats like duck; amd

richer beef based dishes like steak or veal.

Beef Bourguignon suits Cabernet Franc very well though you might not think so given the dishes name.
