La Freixeneda 2012
From an 18th generation Spanish winemaking royal family comes this 30% Garnacha, 70% Cabernet Sauvignon blend that will wow.
Made from 30% Garnacha and 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, this intensely coloured is packed with red and dark fruit aromas. The light touch of oak gives this rich and soft red structure, that isn't overpowering but highlights that blueberry and cherry flavours. Expect a long fine finish.
The La Freixeneda is a 13-century farming estate, which has belonged to the Ferrer family for 18 generations. It is the home Spanish winemaking royalty and where the famed Freixenet sparkling wine started.
The iconic estate was recently upgraded and no expense was spared in making it a state-of-the-art bodega that incorporates traditional methods of production from the Catalan region. All this goes into every bottle produced at the world-class estate.
