Vintage: 2016
VQA Lake Erie North Shore

The 2016 vintage was hot and dry giving us the perfect season to make a Reserve Cabernet Franc. With an obsessive attention to detail in the vineyard, we were able to sculpt the vines into submission to create low yielding concentrated Cabernet Franc harvest. Cold soaked for 5 days to ensure a beautiful deep red colour we then naturally fermented 50% of the batch for more complexity. Aged for 10 months in 70% new and 30% one year old French oak barrels this bold Cabernet Franc is a great example of a vineyard driven Lake Erie North Shore wine.

This rich, full bodied red inspires raspberries, cloves and new leather on the nose. The palate bursts with spiced plums and black pepper with a smooth velvety finish.

Pairs beautifully with braised meats with any rich, dark demi. Also try with salty pork dishes or Coq Au Vin.

Drink now or lay down for 10 years. Only 175 cases were produced.
