The 2015 vintage experienced very warm weather with excellent conditions for fully ripening the grape tannins as well as delivering berry aromas and flavours. This blended wine of approximately 50% Cabernet Franc and 50% Malbec is truly unique. Lifted aromatic and floral notes from the Cabernet Franc complement the dark brooding forest floor and juicy berry notes of the Malbec.
