Grape – Cabernet Franc
Where – Gers, South West France
What – This certified organic Vin de France is a really great example of easy-drinking, moreish Cabernet Franc. It has a luxuriously deep, rich colour and super expressive aromas. It’s bright and light with pinches of pink pepper and dark fruits. It flows gently with tight tannins and an acidity that sits firmly on the juicy side.
The turtle on the label has a great significance to the Uby winery. The vineyards are protected due to a French turtle reserve located nearby – hence the organic certification and sustainable practices. This is the only place that the French Pond Turtle currently breeds, so it’s essential to protect the area!
Blueberries, brambles and blackberries are all noticeable on the palate. It’s impressively elegant and really, really great value for money. The finish is long, fruity and dangerously moreish. Treat yourself!
Elegant, moreish, expressive. Vegan. Organic. Low intervention. ABV 14%.
