Red Wine Augustus Cabernet Franc 2021
Availability: In stock
Based in DO Penedès, the Avgvstvs Forvm winery produces the wine Augustus Cabernet Franc from one of the rare Cabernet Franc vineyards currently existing in Catalonia. Located only 3 km from the sea, the organically farmed vines grow under a mild Mediterranean climate.
After the harvest, the grapes were macerated for 11 days with the skins and then fermented under a strict temperature control. Then this Spanish red wine was aged for 16 months in 300-litre 2nd and 3rd year French oak barrels.
Finally, the red wine Augustus Cabernet Franc 2021 was gently filtered and clarified before bottling. Prior to its commercial release, this organic red wine was further aged for 12 months in the bottle.
It is advisable to aerate this red wine from Penedès 30 minutes before drinking.
Pair this Crianza red wine with meat recipes.
The red wine Augustus Cabernet Franc is medium purple with some garnet tinges.
Very expressive and fresh, with delicate aromas of lilies and violets, alongside some vegetal notions, hints of wild berries and notes of toast, clove, Jamaican pepper and cocoa. This varietal Cabernet Franc has an understated, yet highly suggestive personality.
Pleasant and elegant, this wine from Celler Avgvstvs Forum has a suave body and a savoury texture. Red fruit, green bell pepper, white pepper and some floral remembrances. Very good acidity and mild tannins. Clean, fresh finish.
