Appellation: Uco Valley & Lujan de Cuyo
Grape varietals: 100% Cabernet Franc from 2 regions of Mendoza
Vinification Hand-harvested grapes from each terroir at different dates in order to find the ideal ripeness and expression. Then, each component is elaborated separately. The fermentation takes place in French oak barrels and concrete tanks, at low temperatures (around 23ºC), with indigenous yeasts, therefore achieving a great expression and complexity of aromas. The extraction processes are done manually by pisage. Each Cabernet Franc component is aged in used French and American oak barrels for 6 to 8 months. Finally, our winemaker selects among the best barrels in order to make the final Cabernet Franc Blend. Dark red color. Elegant on the nose, with red and black fruit aromas and hints of mint. On the palate it is fresh and well balanced, with a long finish.
Tasting notes: The nose is very fruit driven and clean with fresh aromas of berries and flowers. The palate is medium bodied, juicy with soft acidity and clean flavors. It ends very tasty with a mineral sensation.
Food Pairing: Roasted and stewed beef or game, braised lamb, sausage, mushrooms, and spice-laden sauces.
