2016 Lo-Fi Wines Cabernet Franc Santa Barbara Valley, 750ml

Availability: In stock (4)

Dry, fruity and expressive red wine that will vanish when drank with a slight chill. The fruit is sourced from Coquelicot , Clos Mullet and Tinaquaic vineyards, all using organic farming practices. The wine is made with carbonic maceration, a process of fermented in a low oxygen environment that preserves the fresh fruit notes of the grapes. Native yeasts, no filteration or fining and only a small dose of sulfur at bottling.

From the mouth of the importer (T Edward):

"Lo-Fi’s ethos is to embrace the unpredictable and uncontrollable factors in vintage and vinification, much like an audiophiles derive pleasure from the clicks, pops, and hiss of their favorite vinyl records. The duo behind Lo-Fi, Mike Roth and Craig Winchester, has built vineyard connections and winemaking chops that put them in a position to deftly guide the fermentation process of these vibrant wines without manipulations or additions. Lo-Fi is marked by easy drinking, low alcohol, neutral barrel—if any—oak, native yeasts, little or no sulfur or other interventions that hide the fruit or the vintage that spawned it. Nothing added and nothing taken away."
