Cabernet Franc, Founder's Select 2017
|Style: Dry Red Wine||Sugar: 4.1 g/L||ABV: 13.5%|
Distinctive notes of raspberry, blueberry, green peppercorn, eucalyptus and cranberry on the nose. Licorice, dark tanned leather and balsam add an attractive complexity. The palate exudes red and dark fruits upon entry and is well balanced and harmonious with smooth velvety tannins and a fine texture. Star anise and baking spices are balanced perfectly alongside the tobacco leaf character. Field berries, coffee and Christmas spice linger on the finish. Enjoy this wine on its own or match with everything from seafood to charcuterie.
The nuanced and delicate nature of this Cabernet Franc favours food pairings that you may not always think to pair with red wine. Try with a maple balsamic cranberry goat cheese salad or fresh and zesty pasta dishes. Head to the grill and try a tangy bbq chicken or pork dish. Asian spices and vegetables will be a natural pairing as well. We suggest pairing with pineapple 5 spice pork ribs or Asian 5 spice shrimp for a match perfectly made.
