Drawn from the vast wine 'engine room' that is the south of France, this light, attractive Cabernet Sauvignon showcases both fruit flavours but also with a sense of French rusticity and charm.
Parnasse is named after the mountain grass that flowers above our vineyards each spring, marking the beginning of a long, languid summer. Francoise Estier weaves the character and strengths of a number of individual regions to create a wine style truly expressive of the South of France – beautifully ripe and expressive whilst softly structured and easy to appreciate.
Bright, vivid brick red in colour with crimson highlights. The nose offers aromas of ripe red berries, surrounded by varietal notes of forest herbs and
black olives. The palate is medium bodied with blackcurrant and raspberry flavours framed by soft tannins. Enjoy this vibrant red wine in its youth with a range of richly flavoured meat dishes.
Totally de-stemmed before a long, cool maceration with regular pump-overs to maximise retention of fruit colour and aroma. Aged in vats for six months with complete malo-lactic fermentation undertaken.
