TUNQUEN CABERNET FRANC 2015
6 BARRELS PRODUCED
The 2015 season had a sunny and warm spring, and although there were some frosts, these didn´t affect the viability of the buds. January was a cloudy and hot month and February made things a little easier. March and April have set records of high temperatures, but fortunately the nights remained as cold as they are always (4-9°C) generating great thermal amplitude. Hand harvested at the beginning of May, when the grapes arrived at the winery, they were selected, destemmed, macerated at low temperatures and fermented at 25-28°C. Transferred to French used oak barrels, malolactic was natural and the resting for 15 months gave us an elegant wine.
