Unsanctioned Series – Cabernet Franc 2017
Unfined. Unfiltered. Unsanctioned. Trust us.
100% Cabernet Franc
Our Unsanctioned Series is reserved for very special wines. The Cabernet Franc was grown in a sheltered vineyard in Oliver. The wine was fermented in a small lot and aged for 21 months in mostly neutral French oak. The wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered.
Only 55 cases produced.
Perfumed aromas of raspberry, blackplum, cassis, cursted earth, sweet spices and an herbal, leafy note. This Cabernet Franc is medium bodied with bright acid, grippy tannins and a long, lively finish. Expect notes of dark fruit, cocoa powder and black tea.
The freshness of this wine combined with the body and acidity make it a wonderful match to Italian food. From a basic spaghetti Bolognese to something a bit more elevated, you won’t be disappointed. Our favourite recipe to pair our Cabernet Franc with is a homemade BBQ pizza (click here for recipe).
