Paracombe Cabernet Franc - 2015


TASTING NOTES Single varietal releases of Cabernet Franc are rare in Australia and Paracombe’s Cabernet Franc is considered one of the finest examples. Initially released in 1993, we’ve released a vintage every year since. Matured in seasoned French Oak barrels, this vintage has delivered a wine with lifted berry, violets and spicy aromas. The palate provides alluring soft fruit, aniseed spice, fine tannin and a lingering finish. Enjoy now or will please with cellaring.   With its gentle style our Cabernet Franc is suited to mushroom & game dishes.
