- The grapes are harvested from 'old vines' (35
years) sourced from the single biggest Cabernet
Franc vineyard in the world located in Lodi, Central
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.
- 'Ignore the pun, within is a juicy, unoaked, sweet redcurrant and herb-flecked joy, made from old-vine cabernet franc.' - Jane MacQuitty, The Times, May 2018

- 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.
