Price: 6.96

Famatina Valley has become the most famous wine region of the province of La Riojana (North West Argentina). Situated between 800 to 1,400 metres above sea level, the climate is dry, relatively windy, and the terrain is dominated by sandy alluvial soils. Farming in this remote, semi-desert area, between two mountain ranges, means that the weather conditions are harsh for humans but ideal for growing grapes. There is very low rainfall and good sun. The passion behind the growing and wine making drives the quality of the wine.
Hand harvested. De-stemmed and lightly crushed. Pre-fermentation maceration for 24 hours at 15C. Fermented with selected yeast at 26C. Macerated for 20 days. Aged 6 months prior to bottling.
Purple coloured with aromas of raspberry and plum. The palate is full and supple with cassis, black cherry and a hint of spice. Soft and elegant tannins.
Pasta with meat sauces. Grilled beef and lamb. Fine with roast Venison.

Domaine de Cantaussels Cabernet Sauvignon, Cote de Thongue


This deep ruby coloured Languedoc Cabernet is perfumed with blackberry and vanilla spice. The exuberance of dark fruit and firm tannins is mellowed in the barrel with scrubland herbs and minerals adding layers of complexity. The full bodied complex palate carries hints of oak and a long satisfying finish. Great with grilled meats, lamb, beef or cassoulet and mature cheeses. Colour: Red
