Paracombe Cabernet Franc 2017
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.
What the reviewers are saying
Paracombe has been a long-time leader in growing and making cabernet franc; its vineyard is mature, as its expertise in handling the variety. The wine has a fragrance all of its own, spanning violets and fresh tobacco, the palate with sweet berries and spiced poached plum. James Halliday
