Bella Terra Cabernet Franc, 2017

Shipped and sold by PondView at Bella Terra Vineyards

2017 Niagara Peninsula 750 mL, 14.5% ALC/VOL
Cabernet Franc

This elegant Cabernet Franc is a medium ruby colour with a tawny rim. It starts with a delicious fruit character on the nose, with notes of black cherry and strawberry compote, followed by notes of sweet spice like cloves and cardamom.

This extra-dry wine has smooth tannins that reveal flavours of dark plum, cranberries, and walnuts on the palate, while maintaining a balanced acidity that ends in a long finish.

Food Pairing: Pair your Bella Terra Cabernet Franc with Beef bourguignon pie recipe

Residual Sugar: 3 g/L
