Apelación Cabernet Franc 2019
Ruby red in colour with firm tannins; great fresh fruit aromas with lush acidity and a long finish. It can be consumed now but will age beautifully for several years.
From selected vineyards in Paraje Altamira and the wider Uco Valley.
2019 vintage was an exceptional one, where the climate conditions allowed us to harvest each region, variety and soil type at the time we were expecting. Spring was generally humid (not necessarily rainy, but humid, with dew points that where higher than average). It has been a year of cool temperatures during a full week of January, and then moderate temperature always below average. The same thing happened during February and March, however this was a year of high luminosity.
Made with grapes harvested during the first week of April. Fermented with native yeasts in concrete vats filled by gravity. Skin maceration for 20 days. Complete malolactic fermentation. Aged in 2500l foudres.
