Product Description
Details

This is the new vintage of Abadal Franc, an interesting Spanish red wine from the Catalan region of Pla de Bages.

Its composition is quite original. This red wine from Pla de Bages is a blend of Cabernet Franc, Ull de Llebre and the indigenous Sumoll

Produced by the Abadal winery, the grapes were separately harvested and then fermented in stainless steel tanks submerging the solid skin cap.

Then, Abadal 2018  was aged for a brief period of 4 months in American and French oak barrels.

Appearance

The wine Abadal Franc has a very bright, medium cherry-coloured robe with a garnet rim.

Nose

This interesting red wine by Bodegas Abadal is quite pure and full of life. Aromas of blackcurrants, raspberries and cherries, alongside aromas of toffee, spices, dry earth and intense forest-floor remembrances.

Palate

Fresh and expressive, this blend of Cabernet Franc, Ull de Llebre & Sumoll has a distinctive acidity and remarkable focus and tension. Aromatic herbs, juicy red fruit, blue flowers and some earthy remembrances. Long, spicy finish.

Our personal opinion

From Pla de Bages, in central Catalonia, Abadal Franc 2018 is easy to drink and really fresh. As usual, the presence of the sumoll grape makes a difference.
