These Cabernet Franc grapes are from a vineyard located at 1,050m above sea level in the Uco Valley. The limestone soil, warm summers and low annual rainfall make for excellent growing conditions.
This wine had no oak ageing to ensure that all the fruit flavours come through, it gives a fabulous sensation of sweetness due to the silky and ripe tannins. A wine to enjoy to the end.
