About

The Cabernet Franc is a cellar favourite at Pyren Vineyard. As winemaker Andrew Joy explains, "It's an aromatic delight when harvested and highly anticipated in the winery each harvest." This single block Cab Franc is a succulent, ready-to-drink version of the famous Bordeaux variety. It's medium bodied, perfumed and brimming with plump, juicy fruit. A small portion of Shiraz (14%) from the Pyren vineyard was added to give the Franc a little something extra, but overwhelmingly the theme is a modern, charming interpretation of this fantastic variety. Gary Walsh called it "Dangerously easy to drink." which sums it up nicely.

What it Tastes Like

"Juicy raspberry and blackcurrant, dried rose and grassy perfume, plenty of spice and dried herb. It’s light and fresh, juicy in flavour, but not simple as such, and writes the pleasing herbal signature of Franc with pride. Bouncy and playful, with fine grained tannin tightening up the finish. Dangerously easy to drink. Well done!" - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
