Paul Bosc and Amélie Boury's Winemaker's Notes
Cabernet Franc has become one of Niagara’s signature grape varieties. Very few wine regions in the world produce Cabernet Franc as a single varietal wine. This Cab Franc has concentrated currant and cassis aromas and flavours. We chose to age the wine for only nine months in French oak barrels to layer in a touch of spice and smoke but not mask the vibrant fruit flavours. The result is a balanced wine that has the structure to age for 5-10 years.
Miguel Fontalvo's vineyard manager's Notes
The grapes for this wine were grown exclusively in our vineyards. We believe we are custodians of the land and have been practising sustainable agriculture right from the beginning. We made this Cabernet Franc from hand-selected grapes from more than one of our vineyards. The tradition of sourcing grapes from different vineyards adds character and dimension to wine, and this is a fine example. Our vineyards thrived by very carefully managing the yield from each vine. The result was fully mature, ripe grapes that were brimming with flavour.
