“Vintips! Hungry wines Elsie är en blend på Cabernet franc, syrah, kékfrankos och merlot. Lagrats 14 månader på ungerska ekfat med toner av björnbär, hallon och kryddor. Ett smakrikt vin som är inspirerat från den fantastiska jakthunden Elsie och ett rött som passar bra till grillat, vilt och ugnsrostade rätter.
Rekommenderas!”

Grapes

grapes-3

55% Cabernet Franc, 20% Syrah, 16% Kékfrankos and 9% Merlot

Production

The semi-warm summer days gave a slower ripening and aromatic development of the grapes resulting in plenty of freshness and character. The wine was aged in oak barrels for 14 months before bottling to reach complexity and balance. The Ardea seal guarantees no cork taint and is ideal for long-term ageing.

Storaging

Drink now and until 2023

Character

Elegant red wine with medium smooth tannins, fresh acidity, full bodied, well balanced.

“Ett fint exempel på svalodlad frukt och på hur bra cabernet franc trivs i landet. Den får sällskap av mindre delar syrah, kekfrankos och lite merlot. Och ger oss saftiga tanniner, läskande röda plommon, viol, peppar och friska örter. “
