There has been a notable increase in the number of Cabernet Franc wines coming out of Argentina in the last few years, the quality has been very impressive and this new wine from Accuro is no exception.
Lovely flavours of red plums, blackberry, and a hint of roasted peppers come through from the Cab Franc, whilst the addition of a little Malbec and Cab Sav provides a little extra richness and body to the wine. The problem with it is that it is a just a little too easy to drink!!
This wine is suitable for vegans.
