The Cabernet Franc – a Wine for Connoisseurs
The Cabernet Franc is an old and traditional grape variety which originates from Bordeaux and has been cultivated there for centuries through a selection of wild vines. The smooth and elegant wine is defined by its rich body and is therefore often used in cuvees. Its grapes make for a light red, strong wine in which aromas of blackcurrant, tobacco and violet resonate. Bordeaux wines cannot be without the Cabernet Franc.
Cabernet Franc – a Wine More and More Popular
The Cabernet Franc is a relative of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Yet it buds earlier than its related vines, ripens quicker and therefore has higher yields. Because of that it is a popular grape variety amongst winemakers. The Cabernet Franc is defined by wealth of colour and a great fruitiness; its body is rich and spirited. Cabernet Franc wines go best with dark meat, soups and stews. Be seduced by the elegant red wines and try a South African Cabernet Franc from our online shop.
