WINE REVIEW

A rare Cuvée from Breaky Bottom that combines all four grapes grown on the estate, with 55% Seyval Blanc, 40% Chardonnay and 5% Pinot’s Noir & Meunier.

A delicate pale golden colour in the glass, Francine’s bubbles are less plentiful than the younger releases, but her elegance and persistence no less alluring.

Aromas of apples, light floral with subtle yeasty notes and hints of mature stone fruit suggesting age.

On first taste, the palate is greeted with surprisingly youthful (for a 10-year-old wine) acidity, as well as fresh pear and tangy bruised apple flavours.

The flavours just go on and on, as citrus zest, toasted spice and yeasty notes linger on the finish.

This remarkable wine still has plenty of life in it yet!
