Fifty-six cases of the 2016 Premium Cabernet Franc was bottled with cork closures. We expect that over time the wine will continue to develop more fully than it would with a screw cap. Cabernet Franc is the most integrated and ready-to-drink of Strewn's red wines from the outstanding 2016 vintage and the first to be released.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Both earthy and spicy with aromas and flavours of raspberries, strawberries, coffee, tobacco, spice, dill, flint, black pepper, smoke, and toasty oak. The wine has a beautiful balance, vibrant acidity, and long, firm tannins at the finish. Best serving Temperatures 16° to 19°C
Winemaker Notes
Produced from fruit harvested between 6th to 9th November, 2016 from three Niagara vineyards, with a weighted average of 23.3 Bx. After fermentation in small stainless steel bins with malo-lactic fermentation, the wines were pressed to seasoned French, American and Canadian oak barrels for a period of 15 months. Bottling was undertaken after pad filtration.
Food Pairing Notes
Accentuate the wine's earthy notes with portobello mushroom, smoked meats, barbecued chicken or red meat and even eggplant Parmesan.
