TRAIL ESTATE WINERY CABERNET FRANC WINGFIELD 2016

Wine Region: VQA Twenty Mile Bench, Niagara, Ontario Canada

Grape: Cabernet Franc

Tasting Note

A pure example of the Wingfield Vineyard. Subtle vanilla, pure raspberry and a slight aromatic of beetroot. A smooth tannin structure on a full bodied palate.

90 points, Tony Aspler, tonyaspler.ca. Deep ruby colour; cedary, brambleberry & dark chocolate nose with a light floral top note; medium-bodied, dry, richly extracted, mulberry flavour rounded out with oak spice. Rich & full palate, well-structured with a firm but ripe tannic finish. Drink now or hold 3–4 years.

About the Winery

Winemaker Mackenzie Brisbois aims for honesty inside the bottle—whether it be their Skin-Ferment Riesling, Orange Wine, Pét Nat Sparkling, soulfully complex Unfiltered Chardonnay, or barrel-aged varietals. All wild ferments, and many of their artisanal wines are left whole and unfiltered without the use of additional enzymes or tannins.
Each wine tells the story of site and vintage with unabashed honesty and is never the same year-to-year.

Wine should be surprising, textural and soulful; not predictable. As each wine ages, the artisanal nature of each wine becomes apparent.
