Franc Arman Cabernet Franc 2013

Franc Arman Cabernet Franc 2013 is a lovely 100% Cabernet Franc wine that can be savoured on its own or with food. Try the wine in a big glass next to an open fire. The wine bottle ages beautifully.

The Cabernet Franc vines grow in ‘rust’ red terra rossa soil over a layer of limestone rock on a slightly elevated plain at 250m above sea level on the south side of the Mirna Valley. This has a distinct bearing on the taste of this red wine, which has more character than other Cabernet Franc wines.

The climate is ideal for producing wines with a full expression of fruit. Hot summers with rain throughout the year keep the landscape verdant even in the height of summer as there are frequent thunder storms There is rarely snow in the winter, which are generally mild to cold as the Adriatic Sea stabilises the climate of coastal regions.

Tasting Notes

This elegant varietal red wine is aged in large oak barrels. Its colour is a vibrant deep ruby-red. It has a dark fruit flavour infused with hints of herbal spices. The taste is dry and lively, rounded with a slightly bitter finish. Recommended with meat-based dishes.

“Wine lovers who like wines produced from the Cabernet Franc grape from the Loire Valley, will love this Cabernet Franc from Croatia. Delightful ruby-red wine, minty and herby on the palate, nice firm tannins, great food match with lamb and cheese.” John Roberts (Wine Consultant)
