Tasting Notes: A smooth, medium bodied and easy drinking wine that strikes a lovely balance with its blackberry, plum and dark cherry fruit characters coupled with classic varietal leafy tones. Made predominantly from Old Vine Cabernet Franc (85%), the balance being a harmonious blob of sibling Cabernet Sauvignon. The story and overall package may be light-hearted, but the wine inside is as ever, seriously good with oodles of drinkability!

Producer Details: Boutinot has been working with growers in California for over 10 years, constantly sourcing the best value from vintage to vintage, increasingly with specific estates sourcing old vine material that represents the best possible value for money. The current Burlesque wines are sourced from the warm region of Lodi in Central California.

In The Vineyard: The grapes are harvested from 'old vines' (35 years) sourced from the single biggest Cabernet Franc vineyard in the world located in Lodi, Central California.

In The Winery: 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.
