Château Franc Cardinal wine is a blend of Merlot (72%), Cabernet Franc (24%), and Malbec (4%). The palate showcases sheer elegance, with prominent plum and prune flavors accompanied by a subtle smokiness and a delicate hint of almond. Its overall quality is exceptional and unmatched. The farm practices organic viticulture, with no use of pesticides or herbicides. The wine is crafted from three separate vineyard plots, primarily planted with Merlot, complemented by Cabernet Franc and a small amount of Malbec. The winemaking process at Château Franc Cardinal involves cold maceration and long fermentation on the skins to extract optimal flavor and color from the grapes. The wine is then aged in French oak barrels to enhance its complexity and add subtle oak characteristics. ABV 13.5%
