Zuccardi Poligonos Cabernet Franc San Pablo – 2019
Cabernet Franc from Mendoza is potentially one of the wine world’s most exciting combinations of grape and terroir – and this wine is a perfect demonstration!
On the nose it has pure and fresh raspberry aromas. In the mouth it is silky smooth and very fine, with full body and impressive complexity of flavours. Like the Malbec, it finishes with a bite of stony minerality.
“Young the vines may be – this is only the fourth edition of this wine – but this is a truly wonderful Cabernet Franc from a parcel at 1,400 metres in San Pablo. Hauntingly ethereal and perfumed, it has fine- grained tannins, cut grass and graphite aromas and racy black cherry fruit framed by nuanced oak.” 95/100 pts Tim Atkin MW
