Verum Seleccion de Familia Cabernet Franc 2014
Patagonia is considered one of Argentina’s most beautiful places and for winemakers it offers fertile soil, numerous hours of sun and abundant water. In this privileged setting Bodega Del Río Elorza was born, a realization of a combined dream between two families - the ‘Del Rio’ family and the ‘Elorza’ family.
Led by internationally renowned winemaker Alberto Antonini and local winemaker Mariano Vignoni, their experience and understanding of this unique Patagonian terroir
impart great personality in the wines.
TASTING NOTE: Classic elements of Cabernet Franc on the nose including wild strawberry, pencil shavings and a hint of blackcurrant. This is riper than a typical old world Cabernet Franc and does not show too much stalkiness, instead it offers more depth of fruit and a slight touch of mint. The fuller bodied palate is elegant with firm tannins but a balancing acidity. Cedar notes show from the use of French oak and the finish is dominated by bright red fruit
