$79.95

Domaine Naturaliste Le Naturaliste Cabernet Franc 2020

Cabernet Franc is the shy little sister of the Bordelaise family: aromatic, soft textured and boasting pristinely fine tannin and drive.

The decision to craft an expression of Margaret River as seen through the mode of this noble and ancient grape was an easy one, particularly when faced with fruit grown in the heart of Wilyabrup and on our quintessentially alimental gravel loam soils.

Subtle threads of violets, cherry blossom and fresh juniper berries serve as highlights to an ample tapestry of black plums, cacao nib and ironstone. Sheer textures of crushed granite and black cherry skin are laced with porcelain tannin and quenching natural acidity.

About Domaine Naturaliste

Domaine Naturaliste’s wines are based on a significant understanding of the inherent strengths of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah fruit from the Margaret River Region.
Bruce Dukes, Winemaker/Director of Domaine Naturaliste, states fruit freshness, flavour and texture are the greatest qualities he pursues when crafting his wines. When asked if Domaine Naturaliste wines were natural, he replies “99% natural and 1% supernatural.”

Bruce Dukes

Bruce draws on decades of local and international winemaking experience – including four years at Francis Ford Coppola’s Niebaum-Coppola winery in California and a significant tenure at Pierro Winery locally. His time spent in California helped Bruce hone his exacting and confident approach. His winemaking philosophy is best described by wine expert Professor Steven Kolpan who noted in his book ‘A Sense of Place’ that, “Bruce Dukes articulates the art and science of winemaking with elegance and ease. Bruce knows that the best wines are made vine by vine, berry by berry…”

A University of Western Australia trained Agronomist with a master’s degree in Viticulture and Oenology from the University of California, science underpins Bruce’s approach to selecting fruit. The combination of his passion, artistic and intuitive flair make Bruce the gifted winemaker he is. Bruce’s passion for the region extends to his home life.
