THE VARIETY

Cabernet Franc

Cabernet Franc is native to the Loire Valley in France. A pleasantly easy-to-drink wine, Cabernet Franc is medium bodied, has softer tannins and is aromatic which pairs well with grilled steaks and Portobello mushrooms. The lighter styles pair well with chicken or white fish, too. 

THE REGION

Margaret River

Western Australia’s most famous wine region was established by Dr. Tom Cullity at Vasse Felix in 1967. Quickly followed by Moss Wood and Cullen. Today, Margaret River has over 150 producers on widely varying soils with the region’s best reds coming off the ironstone gravel. Within the region, areas such as the Wilyabrup Valley—a warm maritime climate—are the beating heart of Cabernet plantings. Though famous for Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Shiraz shine here too.
