Summary: Let's be Fran.k- grown sustainably, naturally made and preservative free. Sophisticated natural wines, made simple for the modern day consumer. Naturally crafted from small parcels of cool climate fruit by Frances Kentwell and Nicole Braiser. Fran.k supports WomenandRevolution, an association of wine professionals aiming to achieve gender balance in all areas of the wine industry.
Winemaking: A no fuss approach in the winery focused on celebrating texture in Chardonnay and the regional characters from where it was grown! Made without the use of preservative or additions, Hand picked in the cool of the night to preserve delicate fruit characters and avoid the harsh afternoon sun. Fermented on full solids and stored on lees for six months prior to bottling. Vegan friendly, preservative free, made to enjoy!
Vintage 2022: The 2022 vintage in the Central Ranges was cooler than average and approximately 2 weeks later than the usual harvest periods. This facilitated a long and slow ripening period resulting in red wines with great flavour and aromatic vibrance as well as a fine acid and tannin balance! A characteristic of the 2022 season is beautifully perfumed reds with full flavours.
Tasting Note: Chardonnay with character and plenty of intrigue, aromatics of white nectarine and grapefruit peel aromatics. The palate is rich with white peach and lovely mid palate texture. Subtle oak frames the fruit, crisp and crunchy green apple acidity freshens the palate and provides line and length. A textural expression of Chardonnay made without a heavy hand in the winery. Pair with Pasta alle Vongole-
