Andeluna Cellars Blanc de Franc Rosé 2019
Inspired by rosé wines found in the Loire Valley, the Andeluna Blanc de Franc Rosé is a unique Argentinian expression made from Cabernet Franc grapes grown in Tupungato, at 1,300 metres above sea level. At this altitude the grapes develop thicker skins to protect themselves against the intense sunlight, resulting in concentrated flavours and deep colours. Although a red wine grape, the Cabernet Franc grapes were treated as though they were a white variety, both in the vineyard and the cellar. Once at the winery the grapes were immediately pressed with the free run juice being separated from the pressed juice. Only the free run juice was used for this wine. The Blanc de Franc is a refreshing rosé displaying intense floral aromas, with spicy and herbal top notes of white pepper, tomato leaf and basil. The unctuous palate has a silky texture and is beautifully balanced by bright acidity on the crisp, spicy finish.
