Presenting Zorzal Eggo Franco Cabernet Franc, a truly exceptional wine that showcases the best of Argentine winemaking. Crafted from grapes grown in the northwest region of Gualtallary, at an elevation of 1,350 meters above sea level, this wine is a testament to the unique terroir of the area.
The grapes are hand-harvested in 16kg boxes and then fermented in concrete eggs. This method allows for the use of native yeasts, which naturally start the fermentation process. The ovoid shape of the concrete eggs facilitates a constant movement of the wine, resulting in gentle and homogeneous extractions of the wine’s components. After fermentation, the wine undergoes a 40-day maceration with the skins before being separated. The wine is then returned to the concrete eggs for aging.
The Zorzal Eggo Franco Cabernet Franc is a brilliant red wine with violet tones. Its aroma is complex and mineral, with prominent notes of herbs, such as green pepper, accompanied by black pepper. On the palate, it is juicy and fluid, with a solid structure and excellent acidity that provides a refreshing experience. The finish is long-lasting and satisfying.
With an alcohol level of 14.5% and containing only 2.27g/L of residual sugar, Zorzal Eggo Franco Cabernet Franc is a wine that embodies elegance and balance. Its unique production process and exceptional flavors make it an irresistible choice for wine connoisseurs.
