Buy Cabernet Franc Red Wine Online
Cabernet Franc, a red wine grape variety, it’s said to have originated in the Bordeaux region of France. Often misunderstood to be a descendant of the famous Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc (along with Sauv Blanc) is in fact its parent as per DNA analysis conducted in 1997. The two relatives may share the same forename but are quite distinct in terms of characteristics. While Cab Sav is complex and robust with more tannins & alcohol, Cabernet Franc wine is aromatic with less ABV, medium to high acidity and mouth-watering flavours. In its homeland, the grape has earned quite a popularity being a part of the famous Bordeaux blend. Widely grown in France, outside the country it’s also produced in Italy, Australia, NZ, the US, South Africa and Canada.
