Alto de la Ballena Reserva Cabernet Franc 2008 (6 x 750mL), Maldonado, Uruguay.

Grape Variety: 100% Cabernet Franc

Tasting Notes: Garnet red colour. Delicate aroma; mature red fruits, mint, caramel and vanilla are blended. In the mouth it has a velvet feel, good structure with soft tannins. Lingering finish, with aftertaste of chocolate and tobacco.

Age of the Vineyard: 11 years old

Time of Harvest: March 2008

Altitude: 80 metres above sea level

Harvest Method: Harvested by hand in small boxes.

Winemaking: The careful management of the vineyard using the best agricultural practices, along with low yields per vine, made it possible to produce high quality grapes for this wine. After being hand harvested in small boxes, the grapes were lightly crushed and underwent cold maceration for two days. Fermentation then took place in stainless steel vats at controlled temperature. The optimum ripeness achieved in the vineyard enabled the wine to be kept in contact with the skins for twenty days once the alcoholic fermentation had finished. It was aged in French oak barrels for 12 months. To preserve its qualities it was lightly filtered and bottled without stabilising.
