This single vineyard Cabernet Franc showcases the unique terroir of the Picone Vineyard, located atop the Niagara Escarpment in the Vinemount Ridge sub appellation.
Notes of currants, blackberry compote, anise and cedar mulch with a slight gamey undertone. Rich and full-bodied with plenty of chewy yet well-structured tannins on the palate.
Hand picked and destemmed into stainless steel along with the addition of 25% whole cluster fruit. Approx. 20% of the volume was bled off for rosé, and to concentrate the remaining must. Fermented warm in stainless steel on skins for 28 days before being pressed. Aged in used French oak for 24 months before being filtered and bottled.
