Mi Estancia Varietal Wines • Cabernet Franc

Tasting Notes

Wine of intense reds and violet-black undertones. Spiced aromas reflect its stay in oak with pepper notes, typical of this varietal. Complex, of good structure and ample body on the palate. With a great deal of personality. As this wine is a natural product, delicately treated during its stabilization, bottles may occasionally contain small precipitates.

Expand/CollapseCrafting

Careful grape selection during its manual harvest. Once in the winery, a process of delicate destemming and cooling takes place before vatting. This is followed by fermentation for approximately 11 days, adding selected yeasts, with a controlled temperature of 25°C. Then It rests in masonry pots for 4 to 5 months and after that it is stored in American and French wood for 6 months. Once bottled, it matures in the bottle for 4 months before it is sold.
