Cabernet Franc proprietor's single vineyard grapes, from ungrafted selected clones of pre-phylloxera French rootstock. Harvest took place on April 10th, 2019.
Hand-picked cabernet franc grapes are carried to the winery immediately after cutting, and carefully selected before winemaking. Grapes are destemmed, pressed and cooled at 8°C. Wine is decanted for 24 hours at 8°C prior to fermentation. Fermentation with natural yeasts in stainless steel tanks between 13 and 17°C for 25 days. Soft pump over during fermentation to promote aromas & color. No stabilization process, no filtration, no added sulfites.
With an intense and vibrant cherry colour, this natural wine appears slightly cloudy, due to it's lack of processing. On the nose, it has lively aromas of black cherry and fresh plum. The palate is fresh and persistent, silky with soft tannins and has a lush floral flavour that combines with raspberry fruit.
