Broc Cellars Cabernet Franc KouKou
PRODUCER: At Broc Cellars, all of their wines are made using spontaneous fermentation, a process that means they only use native yeasts and bacteria that exist on the grapes in order to make wine. They don’t add anything – this includes nutrients, yeast, bacteria, enzymes, tannins or other popular fermentation agents. Sulphur is a naturally occurring element in all wine, the amount found can vary. They add little to no S02, depending on the wine and style.
WINEMAKING: The grapes were brought in and placed whole cluster in 5-ton fermenters. Foot stomped in the morning and pumped over in the evening. We gently pressed into neutral French oak barrels and aged for 5 months.
TASTING NOTE: Koukou is delightful served ever so slightly chilled. Enjoy all the blackcurrant fruit pastille, lavender, tangy cranberry, wild strawberry and crunchy red pepper flavours with tapas, aubergine in pretty much any format, fresh tomato sauces.
