Vinification of the Barrel Selection Cabernet Franc from Bodegas Salentein
This red wine clearly focuses on one grape variety, and that is Cabernet Franc. For this wonderfully powerful single-varietal wine from Bodegas Salentein, only the best grapes were harvested. After the hand harvest, the grapes reach the winery by the fastest route. Here they are sorted and carefully milled. Then fermentation takes place in small wood at controlled temperatures. After fermentation is complete, the powerful Barrel Selection Cabernet Franc is aged for several more months in oak barrels. After the wine is finished, the Barrel Selection Cabernet Franc is carefully harmonized
