Cuvée Madeline Cabernet Franc
Rich dark purple in colour, this is a wine of deeply-rooted structure and classical dimensions. The warm, unbridled intensity of Madelines from warm years are succeeded in 2017 by restraint and cool-headed Old World noblesse. The bouquet combines notes of blue-blooded Bordelais flavours and the spicy lushness of Niagara. The palate is a study of symmetry, density of fruit and refined, round tannins - all holding together with seamless precision. It's a wine that takes you on a world-wide journey of Cab Franc references, yet speaks a language uniquely its own.
