Description

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.
