TONEL ÚNICO 183 CABERNET FRANC 2013
Bodega & Cavas de Weinert was founded in 1975 in Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza by the Brazilian of German origin Don Bernardo Weinert, who, fascinated by the world of wines, decided to set up his own winery in Argentina with an unconditional philosophy: to produce wines of high quality. quality. Before embarking on such a task, he made an extensive study of Mendoza: its climate, soil and vines; and he found in Luján de Cuyo the ideal place for his undertaking. After an arduous restoration process in the building acquired in 1974, he brought the latest winemaking technology of that time and joined with Raúl de la Mota, known worldwide as the father of modern viticulture and also named the best winemaker of the 20th century in Argentina. In 1996, the Swiss-born winemaker Hubert Weber joined the winery, who at just 27 became the main winemaker at Bodega & Cavas de Weinert to date. Don Bernardo Weinert is a man whose business philosophy is very simple: “as long as you have your own philosophy and maintain it over the years, you will be on the right track.

Tasting Notes: The Tonel 183 comes from a small batch of Cabernet Franc from the Barrancas area. The batch is so small that only enough was made for a 2,500-liter oval barrel, ideal for shorter aging periods and that enhance the natural sweetness of this super limited edition wine. It reflects the personality given by our large French oak barrels that rest in the underground cellars. Coming from batches of a single barrel, they are limited editions that seek to play with the character that each barrel confers on our wines.
