Description

The Beach House Merlot Cabernet Franc blend is a brand-new wine in their portfolio. In 2019 they trialled adding some Cabernet Franc to the Merlot and low and behold! A new wine was born, variety is the spice of life, and we are loving it… Now in its 3rd year and 2021 is as good as the 2019, if not better. The fruit was hand-picked, de-stemmed and fermented separately in small open-topped vats where they were gently hand-plunged and pumped over to aid in extracting the maximum amount of flavour and colour from the berries. This wine screams black forest cake with loads of dense plums and chocolate. Soft and plush across the palate but with plenty of weight and length, this will pair perfectly with slow-cooked beef cheeks. Will drink nicely through 2026.

Smells

a delightful bouquet of blackcurrant leaf, a floral perfume with hints of olive, dried herbs with dark chocolate and raspberry ripple nuances.

Tastes

Plump, plush, soft, and simply delicious, oh and irresistible. A flavoursome wine with fine grain, and gravelly tannins giving texture, structure, and length, making for a superb drinking Bordeaux blend and a must-have for all your future BBQs.
