Cabernet Franc Cabernet Sauvignon Australia Pasport 2016 (Murray Darling / Riverland)
While limited compared to other varietals in Australia, Cab Franc has seen significant growth in recent years, becoming increasingly favored and desired for blends and varietal wines. This spirited blend mixes Cabernet Franc with Cabernet Sauvignon for a hearty,fruity wine perfumed with cherry, red berry, cassis, spice, and vanilla aromas. The palate explodes with black and red berry flavours, hints of herbs and spice, and firm tannins.
This Australian fusion pairs Cabernet Franc from Murray Darling with Cabernet Sauvignon from the Riverland Region. The Murray Darling region is tempered by warm to hot days, noticeably cooler nights, and receives plenty of ultra violet rays for the grapes to soak up, enabling them to ripen fully each year. The Murray and Darling Rivers, for which the region is named, provide much needed water. The neighbouring Riverland region shares the hot & dry climate, long hours of sunshine, and also benefits from the Murray River, the water source for the area’s vineyards.
Pairs well with:
Game meats, various lamb dishes, or black pepper crusted seared tuna steaks. Prime rib, pot roast with root vegetables, or Manchego cheese with rosemary also pair well.
