Bleasdale has been using Cabernet Franc in blends for quite a while, over 25 years. The opportunity to present the varietal on it’s own was too hard to resist, especially as a bouncy, fresh and crunchy red. This wine has been made with minimal yet attentive winemaking and is bottled with low sulphites for early consumption.

Bright crimson red with purple tints, the perfume is inviting with rose petal, musk and raspberry from whole berry fermentation along with some star anise and fennel complexity. The palate is lively with a silky middle palate, some structural savoury tannins and a crunchy red apple finish. Bottled early to retain freshness, a perfect spring/ summer red.
