The ever popular Summer Sun Cabernet is 100% Cabernet Franc grapes that are pressed immediately at harvest and fermented away from the skins and seeds. This results in a very pleasant, soft, salmon-pink coloured red wine, with litle to no tannins, while maintaining subtle Cabernet flavours. Serve slightly chilled. Vibrant citrus nose(lime, grapefruit) with a hint of sweetness. Dry finish. A wonderful match with seafood, cheese, grilled vegetables, appetizers, salads, wraps, summer or daytime foods.
