- Fresh and dry with
a light salmon pink color, the grapes for this Hawke's Bay
harvested at optimum ripeness. Cabernet Franc was used, giving
great flavor, fresh acidity and aromatics. De-stemmed grapes
were transferred to a basket press, where a short period of
soaking and light pressing was enough to color the juice pale
pink. Clean juice was run off to a separate tank to ferment
at cool temperatures to retain the fruit flavors and reduce
phenolics or any bitterness. Try it with the “Roasted Garlic”

in the world, and it is grown extensively in every
wine region of the country, from Salta to Patagonia.

temperature ranges and calcareous, clayey or sandy
soils such as those found at the foot of the Andes.
These geographic and climatic features make Argentine

tannins: sweet, silky and mouth-filling.

wine can be cellared up to four years.
