A marvellous, lean, moustached celebration of the mighty Cab Franc. Meet Captain Francis Frobisher, otherwise known as CABARET FRANK. A 'fun' celebration to the marvellous, lean and mighty Cabernet Franc grape variety. The styling is following a slightly 'Victoriana' theme, a bygone era with some fabulous facial furniture at the nub of the story. “In the late 19th century, Captain Francis Frobisher discovered he had a rare gift – he was able to cultivate a variety of wondrous moustaches which took on a life of their own. He became known as Cabaret Frank and was the toast of society with ladies often fainting at the sight of his many and varied performing moustaches.” (It's all false of course…including the tache!).

The story and overall package may be light-hearted, but the wine inside is as seriously good as ever with oodles of drinkability!

Grapes for this wine are harvested from 'old vines' (35 years) sourced from the single biggest Cabernet Franc vineyard in the world located in Lodi, Central California. To enable the true flavours and characters of the Cabernet Franc (and touch of Cabernet Sauvignon) to shine through, no wood / oak has been used.

MADE BY BOUTINOT encompasses vineyards and cellars primarily in France, Italy, South Africa and England as well as long standing relationships with hundreds of winegrowers throughout other parts of the world e.g. Australia, New Zealand, Chile, Argentina, Spain and the USA. Wines are crafted by both vinifying fruit from Boutinot’s own vineyards and by selecting and blending wine from partner growers.

Dedicated Product Managers (including two Masters of Wine) work hand in hand with the experienced and highly talented winemakers and blenders to bring Boutinot’s winemaking philosophy to life. It's their job to ensure all Made by Boutinot wines are crafted to match the stylistic ideals of how the wine should taste and deliver a vision of high quality wines at every price point.
