Esulé ‘Woman with Gun’ Cabernet Franc / Cabernet Sauvignon

$50.00

Rare blend of the rare Cabernets from RedHeads’. Dense black fruit with elegant structure and subtle French oak for complexity.

THE STORY

Esulé is a tale of modern day tragedy, of being life’s outcast, abandoned. The victim is Cabernet, both Sauvignon and Franc varieties – out of favour they simply don’t figure in McLaren Vale fashion right now … no, Shiraz sits there. But judging by the power and intensity of the grapes, trendy or not, they should be at the forefront of your palate. So, we’re not going to abandon the Cabernets; we are championing them in this superb red that speaks elegant volumes of class and finesse.

We were delighted that the Esulé label was chosen to be part of San Francisco’s MOMA ‘How Wine became Modern’ exhibition, in the ‘Women with Gun’ section. Stylishly it conveys just how far those that rise to the top – materially and emotionally, in love, in career or simply by royal birth – can fall to the rock bottom and be cast out.
