Here are the notes...

 

Fabre Montmayou Resrvado Cabernet Franc 2015

Mendoza, Argentina 14% abv

£15.99

Raised in Bordeaux, Hervé Fabre departed France in the early 1990s in search of new and more challenging wine territory. Hervé now runs one of the leading estates in Mendoza, and another in Patagonia.  This superb red uses all hand picked Cabernet Franc from Luján de Cuyo. Aged for a year in French oak, it's an elegant, complex red that will make fine drinking over the next few years. Decant to allow the flavours to unfurl.

 

HJ Fabre Barrel Selection Malbec 2015

Rio Negro, Patagonia 14% abv

£15.99

This multi award winning red comes from 30 year old Malbec vines grown in Patagonia's Río Negro. Made like a fine claret and aged for 12 months in premium French oak barrels, it's powerful, yet elegant with silky violet and plum fruit and spice. Perfect with beef.

 

HJ Fabre Reservado Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Mendoza, Argentina 14% abv

£15.99

This superb red uses all hand picked Cabernet Sauvignon from Luján de Cuyo and Perdriel vineyards, where grapes ripen slowly which gives the wine depth and richness. Aged for a year in French oak, it's a full bodied, complex red that will make fine drinking over the next few years.

Decant to allow the flavours to unfurl.

 

HJ Fabre Reservado Chardonnay 2016

Mendoza,Argentina 13.5% abv

£13.99

Bordeaux born Hervé Fabre is a leading light in Argentina. First it was with Malbec, now he's leading the way with Chardonnay too. He's harnessed the high Andean climate to bring delicious freshness and fruit vitality to this stone fruit Chardonnay.

Using hand picked, low yield grapes from both Luján de Cuyo and Tupungato, this wine is cool fermented to emphasise its pure fruit freshness.

It's a fine choice for white meats, seafood or a risotto.
