Unsanctioned Series – Cabernet Franc 2018
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 wild strawberry, raspberry, plum and sweet spices, with an herbal, leafy note that reminds you of a tomato vine. This Cabernet Franc is medium bodied with bright acid, grippy tannins and a long, lively finish. Expect notes of dark fruit, cocoa powder and orange pekoe tea. A little restrained out of the bottle, this wine is best decanted for an hour if opened now.
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).
