Mendel, Cabernet Franc, Mendoza, Argentina
The Mendel wines have always been high on my respect list. Pure embodiments of Argentinian grapes and the Cab Franc is fantastic. It’s having a resurgence due to its inky and fruity nature.
At the heart of the operation at Mendel is Roberto de La Mota - one of Argentina´s most respected and experienced winemakers- with experience you just can’t buy his sole objective is to produce wines of unquestionable superior quality expressing the quality and character of our old vineyards and the excellent qualities of the exceptional native soil of Mendoza. A philosophy that we love. Fruit forward with that classic tomato leaf flavour peeking its head out and a wonderful intensity. A wine drinkers wine!
