Humberto Canale Cabernet Franc Gran Reserva

Origin

Humberto Canale Cabernet Franc is from Patagonia in Argentina.  In 1909 the winery was founded by an engineer who gave the winery its name. Four generations later Guillermo Barzi Canale is managing the business.

Patagonia provides a very different Argentinian wine style for those raised on the heat of Mendoza: at 39 degrees of latitude, with sun-filled days and cold nights, the High Valley of the Rio Negro gives wines strong on finesse and aromatic character.

Style

This wine has an attractive garnet colour. On the nose there are notes of spice ripe red berries such as strawberries and cherrie and a smoky, vanilla aroma. On the palate it is full bodied with soft tannins and ripe red fruit flavour and a long persistent finish.

Food Match

Game, roast lamb, spare-ribs on the grill and rice dishes
