(2023) Fourth generation wine producers, the Desbourdes, make this organically certified Cabernet Franc. Vivid crimson-purple in colour, it has intense, sheer, red fruit with a hint of sappy, peppery character. Juicy on the palate, there is the tartness of raspberries, but a satin texture and suggestion of a little cocoa depth to the fruit flavour. The finish is long and pure, gentle tannins and unobtrusive acidity giving freshness while maintaining its easy drinking appeal.
