You may be more familiar with London Born Wine Co. than you think! Previously named Aure Wines, this Niagara winery was re-branded by the Hoare family from Britain who have been cultivating vines and making wines for over 10 years. Starting with Gamay, Cabernet Franc, and Siegerrebe grapes, the winery now has an ample portfolio that stretches from Pinot Blanc to White Gamay to Marechal Foch.
Our tasting team loved this Cabernet Franc with its hints of black pepper, black currant, and licorice. An extra kick of tannins gives the wine a nice balance and structure. Enjoy!
