Description

Argentina is a country with an old history of winemaking and specialises in high-altitude vineyards achieving cooler climate characters in their wines as a result of the height. La Celia is over 125 years old and the oldest winery in the Uco Valley, Mendoza. This Cabernet Franc vineyard is located at 1050m above sea level (nearly a third of the way up Mt Cook!!), makes me shiver thinking about it. The grapes were fermented around 27 degrees using selected yeasts with a total maceration (time with skins) time of 24 days, pressed and put to barrels for 9 months, in both French and American casks.

Smells

Delicate aromas of red berries, a lifted floral perfume with cedar and spice notes. Taste: there is a lot sweet generous fruit initially with rosehip, cranberries and red cherry flavours, supported by the medium weight tannins which envelop the rounded fruit, giving structure. Good length and balance, a wine that is perfect drinking now and over the next couple of years; fruity, juicy and smooth. Serve with cheeses, cured meats and pasta.

We taste, rate & guarantee every wine we sell.
