Jed Limited France Release Cabernet Franc 2010
Mendoza is Argentina’s most famous wine region and also one of the world’s biggest in terms of land mass. The Uco Valley is located at the southernmost tip of Mendoza and as such, it’s high altitude, cool climate vineyards provide an ideal site for Cabernet Franc. This wine was made from closely spaced low yielding vines which produce wines with great depth. Grapes were hand-picked and hand sorted to ensure only the best fruit goes into our limited release wines. Although there are very limited plantings of Cabernet Franc in the Uco Valley, the results to date have been very impressive.
Robust red berry flavours on the front palate lead to complex layers of mixed spice and subtle mint. Lightly toasted oak and underlying spice notes seamlessly combine with the rich fruit flavours. The finish features fine ripe tannins with good balance and generous fruit weight.
Complex aromas of cassis, fresh mint and mixed spices.
