Gail Wines Nelligan Road Cabernet Franc 2020
Our first GAIL bottling where we have actually blended two vineyards to make one wine and we couldn’t have been happier with the result. Native fermentation in stainless steel tanks followed by 16 months of sur-lie aging in neutral oak helped us tame the savory side, bringing forth the wine’s natural fruit profile.
This will be our last Cabernet Franc release for a while. We highly recommend stashing this one.
ALCOHOL BY VOLUME
Our approach in the cellar is one of attentive waiting; wines are only moved when they require it. Fermentations are spontaneous without the addition of commercial yeast. Wines age sur lie in a blend of large cask and neutral oak barrels, developing texture and varietal character without intervention.
