Description

A smooth, medium bodied and easy drinking wine that strikes a lovely balance with its blackberry, plum and dark cherry fruit characters coupled with classic varietal leafy tones. Made predominantly from Old Vine Cabernet Franc (85%), the balance being a harmonious blob of sibling Cabernet Sauvignon. The story and overall package may be light-hearted, but the wine inside is as ever, seriously good with oodles of drinkability!

The grapes are harvested from 'old vines' (35 years) sourced from the single biggest Cabernet Franc vineyard in the world located in Lodi, Central California. To enable the true flavours and characters of the Cabernet Franc (and touch of Cabernet Sauvignon) to shine through, no wood/oak has been used.

Boutinot has been working with growers in California for over 10 years, finessing our offering from vintage to vintage, increasingly with specific estates sourcing old vine material and site-specific fruit. The current range of wines are sourced from the warm region of Lodi in Central California, to which Samantha Bailey brings her esteemed palate and decades experience to hone these elements into the brightest wines of The Sunshine State.
