Cabernet Franc can often be looked down on in favour of Cabernet Sauvignon, but this is an unfair asessment. For a start, Cabernet Sauvignon is the child of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc and is predated by both by a very long time. Cabernet Franc is also a parent of Merlot and can easily be confused with Carmenére. It is planted throughout the world in large quantities and used for many purposes. It is a hardy grape and matures early which makes it a grape that offers some insurance if other varieties fail. It has many facets but is best known for pepper and tobacco characteristics.
The Cabernet Franc we offer come from Switzerland and Israel and are single variety wines and blends.
As a widely planted grape, it gives the drinker a splendid opportunity to compare different interpretations from around the world.
