Grapes were grown in Valduga’s own vineyards in the Campanha region, which borders Uruguay. This is Brazil’s oldest vineyard region, as well as its lowest-lying, at 210 metres above sea level. The grapes were hand-harvested and then underwent a further selection in the winery. The wine was kept in second-use French oak for eight months and aged in bottle for another year before release.
A fascinating example of Cabernet Franc showing red fruits, strawberry and cherries well matched with spices; soft yet refreshing on the palate.
