Cabernet Franc is one of the classic red grapes used to make famous
French Bordeaux Cabernets. It makes especially good Cabernet from the
Pelee Island Vineyards because it ripens early and well in the warm island micro climate.

Deep purple-red in colour. Perfectly ripe fruit on the nose, with red berry, cherry and green pepper aroma. A ripe fruit flavour with a balanced acidity
Pair with:
– Steaks and beef
– Lamb and pork dishes served with creamy or gravy style sauces
– BBQ and roasted or grilled meat mains
– Partners with smooth pates and most hard cheeses.
