About

Ma Petite Francine is a brilliant, ‘nouveau’ take on a single vineyard Cabernet Franc. Sourced from the Coldstream Hills region in the Yarra Valley, Francine is made in a super approachable, drink now style. Lighter-bodied reds, oh how we love thee. The fruit receives 100% carbonic maceration (a technique most famously utilised in Beaujolais whereby the majority of the juice is fermented whilst still inside the skins) and is 100% whole bunch pressed. This works perfectly with the high-toned aromatics of Cab Franc, accentuating the herbal, funky characters alongside the perky fruit. Gary says it's the best version of Francine he's made to date. In the end, the wine just screams ‘drink me’. Funky enough to thrill the true wine geeks out there and novices alike. Francine ticks a lot of boxes and is a great intro into Gary’s range. Enjoy.

What it Tastes Like

"Fruitiness, freshness, ease of drinking, a sloshy-bright texture and a gulpable feel. Locked and loaded. It’s muddied black and red berry scents, sniff of herbs, anise whiff, scent of ripe plum. The palate is, as above, loose-knit, but there’s a burst of wicked acidity to keep the thing tidy and fresh. Finishes with amaro-like herb-spice, sweet-sour and a chomp of tannins. Great drinking." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
