Bordeaux is best known for cabernet sauvignon and merlot, but their lesser-known blending partner cabernet franc is deserving of a bit of the spotlight as a standalone varietal. It’s slightly lighter in body than it’s more popular siblings and tends towards the herbal, spicy and savoury end of the spectrum. The fruit profile is gentle and silky and there’s a nice touch of acid on the finish. This cab franc is a reserve, meaning it’s a selection of the best bunches out of the vineyard and produced on a smaller scale. So have a go at one of Australia’s finer examples of one of Bordeaux’s under-the-radar gems.

Here's where cool climate varietals really come to play in WA. Slightly cooler again than Manjimup, you'll find the best of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Semillon in this relatively remote region. A recent find in the scheme of things, the first vines were only planted here in 1977. Such a lush region forested with famous Karri trees, that only fifteen per cent of its area is available for viticulture. Believe it or not though, there are now over 50 cellar doors here! Enjoy every drop you can find from Pemberton, and if you're lucky enough, match it with the local marron, truffles or trout.
The rules are there ain’t no rules, but here are some foods we think will work pretty well with this wine...
