Serbal Cabernet Franc 2017

£16.50

A superb example of a single varietal Cabernet Franc. You get green pepper and graphite notes on the notes, and succulent red berry and herbaceous flavours coming through on the palate. Absolutely delicious.

This single varietal Cabernet Franc is a beautiful wine. It comes from vineyards planted in the foothills of the Andes, with the altitude giving the cooling influences needed to let Cabernet Franc shine. This wine is an exceptional expression of Cabernet Franc, it certainly rivals ones from the Loire (Cabernet Franc’s homeland). On the nose, you get green pepper and graphite notes. Whereas, you get succulent red berry and herbaceous flavours coming through on the palate. Altogether, this is a fresh, savoury wine with pleasant fruit showing through. Additionally, the wine is very well balanced and easy to drink with or without food. If you have not tried Cabernet Franc before, you really should because Cabernet Franc is seriously underrated in our opinion. And the critics agree!

Critics

93 / 100 Paz Levinson, Decanter Magazine South American Cabernet Franc, October 2018 (2017 vintage)

A fantastic example of Cabernet Franc from the cool mountains, with a beautifully judged ripeness, balanced by freshness and clever use of oak. Savoury, complex and long-lingering.

The Observer, (2017 vintage)

Cabernet Franc adapts well to the high vineyards of Mendoza, with Atamisque using it for a gorgeously aromatic, ripely fruited delight.

Serbal is the cheaper of the (three, Ed) ranges at Atamisque, which makes this scented, refined Cabernet Franc an outstanding bargain. Poised and perfumed, it has a touch of oak, cool elegance and notes of green pepper, chalk and cassis.
