Cabernet Franc is a grape variety that works very well in the cool, high altitude vineyards of Argentina. Spicy with notes of dried herbs and crunchy black fruits. Rich and ripe but still retains a fresh finish

The Country

Argentina Wines

Argentina

Argentina has established its reputation in the wine world based on its superb Malbecs, but is far from being a one trick pony. It is a country with wide variations in climate from the high altitude sites of Salta, some now exceeding 3,000 metres, to the valleys of Mendoza where 15% ABV Malbecs are not uncommon.

The cooler regions are making some interesting wines from Cabernet Franc, and if there were a candidate for the country's flagship white variety, the highly aromatic Torrontes would be a strong contender.
