Renacer Cabernet Franc 2013

Renacer ‘R’ is an icon wine which represents the finest and boldest expression of the Cabernet Franc grape in Argentina. Incredibly rich and complex, the grapes for the ‘R’ Cabernet Franc are sourced from low-yielding parcels in two vineyard sites in Perdriel and Vista Flores, double hand-sorted prior to fermentation with indigenous yeasts. This limited-edition wine is aged for 24 months in French oak barrels to grant complexity, structure and finesse and then an additional 12 months in bottle before release.

Tasting Notes

This deep and intense ruby colored wine opens with cassis, raspberry and blackcurrant aromas that merge with notes of black pepper, eucalyptus, fresh mint and rosemary. Soft touches of French oak provide complexity and elegance. Good balance between fruit and wood. It has a sweet impact and soft velvety tannins. Fruity, with red fruit highlights and spicy streaks that are typically found in a Cabernet Franc. Good body and concentration with a long persistent finish.
