INFORMATION OF INTEREST Augustus Cabernet Franc

TASTING NOTE

Colour: Clean, clear and bright. Maroon color with violet highlights. High layer intensity. Very nice to see.

Aroma: Expressive floral aromas; such as rose, lily and violet, vegetal aromas (very common in Cabernet Franc) and subtle ripe red fruits harmonize with an elegant and well-barreled barrel.

Taste: If we had to place it on a scale we would have equal parts, finesse, elegance, structure and character. Well integrated tannins. A curious and different wine for those who want to know new things and very well worked. Long and persistent finish.

MATCHING

It can accompany from traditional barbecued onions to the more familiar barbecues.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

In Augustus Forum, the Roca family, with the brothers Albert and Oriol as visible heads of the project, understands like few others the virtues and requirements of the "little" of the cabernets; This is the only way to explain why each year the wine is recognizable while still expressing the character of the vintage. It is always an elegant but forceful wine, friendly but complex. It has all the character of good French cabernets wrapped by the warmth of the Mediterranean and a wise use of wood. Mint, spicy, loaded with ripe fruit and strong toasts, broad, full, long. Scrub, liqueur cherries, licorice, pepper, pencil, blue flowers ..., it does not stop growing. Without a doubt a magnificent example of the possibilities of the varietal.

A reference and pioneer among the Spanish cabernet franc, the Augustus Cabernet Franc is undoubtedly a wine that speaks of the style of a winery and the character of a grape. While many other wineries in Penedés were strongly betting on cabernet sauvignon or merlot as a single varietal, in Augustus they opted for the supposed little sister, the very elegant Cabernet franc, transforming it into a wine that is drunk effortlessly but which makes its noble character clear. at every sip.
