The 2017 Premium Cabernet Franc was bottled with cork closures and we expect that over time the wine will continue to develop more fully in the bottle. Cabernet Franc is the most integrated and ready-to-drink of Strewn's red wines from the outstanding 2017 vintage.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromas and flavours of raspberries, strawberries, coffee, tobacco, spice, dill, flint, black pepper, smoke, and toasty oak. With its vibrant acidity the wine has a beautiful balance producing long and firm tannins at the finish. Best serving temperature: 16° to 19°C
Winemaker Notes
Produced from fruit harvested 15th November, 2017 from the Home Farm at an outstanding 26.5o Bx, and the winery owner’s vineyard on 22nd November, 2017 at 25.3o Bx. After fermentation in small stainless steel bins with daily pigéage and malo-lactic fermentation, the wines were pressed to oak barrels. After 18 month maturation, an blend consisting 55% American, 18% French and 27% Canadian oak (55% new/45% seasoned) was assembled and bottled.
Food Pairing Notes
Accentuate the wine's earthy notes with portobello mushroom, smoked meats, barbecued chicken or red meat and even eggplant Parmesan.

I love the fact that the tannins are not overpowering but it is still an interesting wine with depth.
