Low Sulphur, earthy, fresh, genuine Carignan from South America! Carignan Cecchin is a french style wine made in Argentina. Fantastic purity of fruit and natural earthy texture make it very moreish. The wine maker is an Englishman and travels between the two countries making wines from organic grapes with natural yeasts and minimum intervention. By his own admission, he is still learning but he already makes fantastic wine.
Bodega Cecchin style is lighter than the norm in Argentina and all the better for it. No stodgy extracted fruit here, just bright red and black berries, well integrated tannins and fresh acidity, delicious.
Grape: 100% Carignan
