2020 Niagara Peninsula 750 mL, 14.5% ALC/VOL
Cabernet Franc

All grapes for this full bodied wine were harvested were hand picked and hand sorted at an average of 24 brix, more reminiscent of California rather than a cool climate. This top quality fruit was destemmed, but minimally crushed. Then it underwent a cold-soak before being inoculated for primary fermentation. During fermentation the cap was hand plunged to extract colour and tannin two to three times daily. After a lengthy maceration period the wine was gently racked and the skin and seeds were gently pressed. The wine was then permitted to rest for 24 hours, to settle before being racked into a mixture of French and American oak barrels. The Franc then rested for just over one year without racking or stirring before finally being bottled.

This wine delivers a cascade of powerful aromas and flavours. Notes of ripe blueberries, black cherries, dried figs, and fresh cut herbs are supplemented by floral notes of violets, baking spice and light hints of campfire smoke. Enjoy a voluptuous palate with rich yet velvety tannins, fresh acidity and a long lingering finish. Great weight and intensity will allow it to age for several years.
