Tapiz Alta Collection Cabernet Franc

Single Vineyard from San Pablo Estate, Uco Valley, Mendoza. The San Pablo Estate is at an altitude of 1,350 metres above sea level and characterized by cold nights due to the proximity of the mountains and altitude. Wines produced here are of great intensity in colour, aroma and structure, destined for premium and aged wines. A cold pre-maceration takes place at 8ºC for 5 days and the fermentation is in stainless steel tanks for approximately 14 days at 28ºC. The wine then rests on its lees for 16 days. 100% malolactic fermentation. Ageing is for 10 months in French Oak Barrels of 225 litres 15% of which are first use and the rest of second and third use. This wine has a deep ruby red colour and complex aromas, characteristic of violets, raspberries, wild mint and spicy notes. Medium-bodied with remarkable elegance and balance, leading to delicately sweet and subtle tannins
