Winemaking

Sadly, this is the final vintage of Cabernet Franc that Tawse produced from the Van Bers Vineyard. A Tawse fan-favourite since its introduction in 200, this cellar-worthy wine is sure to sell out fast. Aged 18 months in French oak, it boasts a powerful nose of dark fruit, dried herbs and a hint of oak spice. On the palate, this cellar-worthy wine delivers ripe notes of blackberry, currant and a black tea complemented by firm yet balanced tannins and a lingering finish.

Food Pairing

Bold and spicy, this Cabernet Franc begs for rich dishes to match! Enjoy it with charcuterie & creamy cheeses, Bolognese, Osso Bucco or lasagna.
