Winemaker’s Notes

Tasting Notes
An elegant garnet color. The nose is complex, made of red fruit, highlighted by fresh spices and clove. It is a fleshy wine with smooth tannins. The long palate is underlined by black fruit with a hint of toast. The wine is ready to be drunk now or can be aged for another 5 to 10 years.

Variety
54% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cabernet Franc

Aging
10 months in French oak barrels. Bottled in July 2016.

Pairing
A perfect accompaniment to grilled meat, Asian cuisine and cheese.

 

Importer’s Notes

It is many a year since we tasted a petit château Bordeaux worth its classic retail price-tag, so our hearts leapt when we encountered this old-fashioned beauty seemingly caught in a commercial time-warp. Wilfrid Franc de Ferrière, despite his aristocratic-sounding French name, speaks an unaffected English with a disconcerting New Zealand twang to it (he’s married to a Kiwi). Ste. Foy is in the extreme south-eastern part of Bordeaux.

A relatively sumptuous wine skillfully raised in barriques that remains faithful to its Bordeaux roots while appealing to fans of Merlot’s potential for softly plumy fruit.
