Zorzal Wines 'Eggo Franco'

Cabernet Franc, 2016

Argentina Red

Tupungato, Mendoza 75cl

I was most taken with these wines at a very recent tasting. These are very distinctive wines fermented and aged in concrete eggs, in this case a carbonic maceration followed by c12 months in the egg. Bottled unfiltered. Really interesting and delicious, the Cabernet Franc is particularly good.
Classic Cab Franc nose, red fruits with classic green herbaceous notes.
Sweet fruit on an elegant palate, cherry, hints of plum and Cab Franc green characters but only in a good way. Varietal but a touch richer and sweeter than those from the Loire, and a silky texture.
