In the middle of the Loire Valley Cabernet Franc is prominent in two appellations – Chinon and Bourguiel. Philippines wine supplier Manila wine shop discusses wine by the grape variety Cabernet Franc.

Date: December 12, 2010

In there middle of the Loire Valley Cabernet Franc is prominent in two appellations – Chinon and Bourguiel. These wines are often varietal Cabernet Franc, but some may contain up to 25% Cabernet Sauvignon. Wines from both of these regions tend to be light to medium bodied and most are better consumed within a few years of vintage. Rose style wines are also produced in the Loire Valley.

Cabernet Franc in Italy

The variety is quite popular in Italy, particularly in the north eastern regions such as Friuli. There are some suggestions that some Italian vineyards previously believed to be Cabernet franc may in fact be Carmenere, another Bordeaux variety. Cabernet Franc is used for varietal wines and for blending in these regions.

Cabernet Franc in the United States

In the US the variety is grown mainly as blending material. It is often used in Meritage, a Bordeaux style blend made in California which is gaining popularity.

In cooler regions such as Washington Sate, New York State and also in Canada winemakers are turning to Cabernet Franc because it ripens more reliably in cooler vintages.

Cabernet Franc in Australia

The variety is generally used as blending material in Australia. The major variety used to blend with Cabernet Sauvignon in Australia is Merlot, with Cabernet Franc and Malbec sometimes included. Wines made from of the two Cabernet varieties are sometimes labelled simply “cabernets”

Western Australian wineries have had a history of making varietal Cabernet Franc wines. Happs, Redgate and Woodlands are three wineries in the Margaret River Region who have produced outstanding varietals. Over recent years varietal Cabernet Franc has been growing in popularity in many other regions of Australia but it is still relatively uncommon. Vinodiversity has a list of Australian wineries making varietal Cabernet Franc.
Other regions

Cabernet Franc is attracting interest in Eastern Europe, South America and New Zealand.

The future of this variety depends on fashion. If the trend towards lighter style red wines continues it may figure more prominently, displacing some of the market share currently dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz.
