Eyes

Cherry red with a youthful ruby hue.

Nose

Fragrant herbs, floral black plums and background French oak.

Mouth

A vibrant mouthful of red berry flavour complemented by fresh basil notes, damp earth, tobacco and cedar wood. Medium-bodied only but with a unique herbal fragrance and a lingering black olive flavour that invites immediate drinking. Surely a great pasta match.

Winemaking Notes

Cabernet Franc is one of the parent grapes of the better known grapes Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot & Carmenere. Cabernet Franc red wines are better known in the Loire Valley or the Pomerol area in the Bordeaux region of France, where it is most often blended with other red varieties. The Blue Pyrenees winemakers saw the signature varietal notes featuring in this wine from the cool 2017 vintage, and decided to keep it separate from the regular blending program , where it is known to add a lifted floral perfume. The wine was fermented for 1 week on skins in an open fermenter and pressed close to dryness before settling and racking to 2 and 4 year old French oak barriques for secondary fermentation and maturation for 20 months before fining and bottling in February 2019.
