Product Description
Details

Produced by the Pardas winery, Pardas Negre Franc is a Bordeaux blend made from organically certified vineyards belonging to the DO Penedès.

Specifically, this Spanish red wine is composed of 77% Cabernet Franc and 23% Cabernet Sauvigon. The grapes of the former variety come from two estates: Vinya de la Barraca, planted in 1996, and Les Obagues Velles, planted in 1998. The Cab. Sauvignon grapes come exclusively from the first estate. Both are farmed following environmentally friendly procedures, using no pesticides or chemical herbicides whatsoever.

Separately harvested during September, the two grape varieties of this Penedès red wine were also vinified separately. First, they were destemmed and fermented in centenary concrete tanks lined with resin for a period of 23 to 27 days.

After that, this organic red wine completed a spontaneous malolactic fermentation, and then it was transferred into 225 and 300-litre French oak barrels, where it was aged for 11 months. It was delicately filtered prior to its bottling.

Production of Pardas Negre Franc 2015 totalized 11,514 bottles.

Aerate this Crianza red wine some time before drinking.

Additional Information
Appearance

The red wine Pardas Negre Franc has a medium-high cherry-coloured robe with some violet tinges and a garnet rim.

Nose

Intense and rather deep, this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc shows a rich combination of black fruit, some vegetal and mineral undertones, suggestions of dry earth and balsam, and some hints of spices.

Palate

Bold and palate-coating, this wine of Celler Pardas also has precision and focus. Remembrances of Havanna cigars, green bell pepper, spices, red berries, incense and menthol. Good acidity, crunchy tannins and long finish.

Our personal opinion

The wine Pardas Negre Franc 2015 proves, yet again, that the Bordeaux varieties perform excellently in Penedès.

2 Cabs and... Sumoll? It sounds strange, but now, after 7 years, it works surprisingly good.
