Cabernet Franc 'Sans Soufre'

  • 2015
  • 2013
Fruit was hand-picked and carefully destemmed into small one-ton fermenters. Fermentation by indigenous yeast and pressed in small batches in an old basket press. Aged in French oak barriques for 10 months. Bottled unfined and unfiltered with no sulphur addition.
This is a special bottling of our Cab Franc with zero sulphur addition. On the nose, violets, fresh black fruits and subtle bell pepper undertones. Juicy, crunchy palate with dark fruits and fine tannins. A beautiful, fresh, cool-climate Cab Franc.
This wine was bottled unfined, unfiltered and with absolutely no sulphur post fermentation. Wonderfully low 11.9% alcohol belies richness and vibrancy of this wine. The desirable cooler vintage has allowed us to craft a wine that has fresh acidity, lovely vibrancy and dark fruit; reminiscent of delicious cab franc from Chinon in the Loire Valley, France. Truly a wine that expresses both the soil and climate in the glass. Only bottled in magnum*
