As the temperature begins to chill and the leaves turn from green to red, Southbrook Vineyards is celebrating fall by bringing back the 2013 Triomphe Cabernet Franc to LCBO stores across the province. Cabernet Franc grapes were sourced from Southbrook Vineyards’ organic and biodynamic vineyard, along with several other organic growers from within the Niagara Region. Drinkers will enjoy a nose of red currant with notes of raspberry and savoury herbs all supported by medium toast and firm tannins. This wine is both vegan and vegetarian friendly.
“Six months have amplified the current, running in a direct aromatic-flavour line from strawberry to black currant. Such healthy up front fruit with nary a moment of humidity shines while the wine remains just grounded enough to call it Niagara.”
Michael Godel, Wine Align, 90 points
This wine is best enjoyed with braised lamb, grilled beef, roasted chicken and black and kidney bean dishes. For availability in your area, please visit the LCBO website here. Begin fall properly and grab your bottle of local and organic 2013 Triomphe Cabernet Franc of $21.95 today.
