Description

59N Cabernet Franc uses grapes from Kalos Wines' Barrancas vineyard in Maipu, Mendoza, which sits at an altitude of 759m with deep, alluvial and rocky soils. Vines are 20 years old and grapes go through 15-20 days' cold maceration before fermentation at controlled temperatures. 

The result is a Cabernet Franc of deep ruby red ruby colour with violet reflections. The nose presents high intensity aromas of red fruits and spices, whilst the palate is very fruity and balanced with a long, persistent finish.  Try with a variety of beef and pork dishes, tomato pastas, stuffed peppers, feta, goats cheese or brie.

Argentina's Kalós Wines 59 Novias range pays tribute to Calixto, the Losada familys grandfather, who boasted of having 59 girlfriends in his youth. The Losada family took up residence in Mendoza 20 years ago and decided to produce wines of the highest quality as a way to pay tribute to the wine of the region and thank local people for their hospitality. That is why the philosophy behind Kalós Wines is to produce high-quality wines in small quantities.
