2013 Est. Cabernet Franc 101/750ml

2013 Est. Cabernet Franc 101/750ml

Winner of Best in Show at the 2016 Royal Winter Fair, this wine delivers everything we love about Cabernet Franc from our farm. Expressive aromas of purple flowers, red fruits, bay leaf and fresh-turned-earth lead to a supple, satifying palate. Biodynamic viticulture and precise winemaking have combined to create a wine of great drinkablity, nuance and ageability.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Opening with aromas of red currant and fresh cherry, kirsch, delicate floral notes, fresh tobacco, woodsmoke and wet clay. On the palate, bright, juicy red fruits lead to wave of extract, fine tannins and toast to a long finish replaying, smoky, earthy red fruits.
Production Notes
This Estate Grown Small Lot wine was made from grapes hand harvested from our estate vineyards, gently destemmed and crushed 50% before indigenous fermentation in stainless steel tank for 4 weeks prior to pressing, settling and racking to french oak barrels for 18 months of aging. Following barrel selection and blending, the wine was bottled, unfined and only coarsely filtered.

My absolute favourite Niagara vineyard. This would be my number one pick when it comes to pairing with chicken, steak or a delectably sweet dessert. We even use this wine to cook with as part of a marinade. Best Cabernet Franc I have ever tasted! Thank you Southbrook for your delicious wine, keep making it!
