Leconfield Cabernet Franc 2022


Finding a wine to match a tasty dish is always fun to pursue. Duck red curry is on the menu and this enticing Cabernet Franc has an alluring floral lift, which harmoniously blends with the food. The wine’s fragrance is a sign of good things to come. On the palate, it is densely textured, unveiling blueberry and plummy flavours. Silky and subtle, it has round polished tannins of great definition. As the wine combines with the duck, the bright acidity syncs with the gamy textures and the earthy complexities come to the front palate. Then, the dried herb elements of the wine are accentuated by the spiciness of the curry paste, giving it a vibrant fragrant persistence. The lychees and carrot of the dish add freshness and are blended in with the wine’s juicy acidity, evolving to a sweet-fruit finish. A unique food matching highlighting the wine’s velvety smooth texture, its charming character and uplifting freshness.
