We love Cabernet Franc at Taste Argentina, so we're excited to introduce this little gem from our Taste of South America collection. This one is from Uruguay's southerly wine region of Canelones.
The grapes for the Vina Progreso Cabernet Franc come from small plots located within the Progreso village district. The most important influences on the grapes in these vineyards is their proximity to the sea and the clay calcareous soils with a high PH, similar to those in Burgundy. With these vineyards, Vina Progreso obtains high concentration of tannins and delicate flavours and aromas.
The 2018 Cabernet Franc delivers plenty of soft red fruit and herbaceous notes typical of the grape. It's smooth with well structured tannins and acidity. Drinking now, but will age nicely over the next five years.

Viña Progreso takes its name from Gabriel’s local village, Progreso, and the project is aptly named as these are indeed progressive wines, made by a guy whose enthusiasm, energy and open-mindedness shine through in the wines themselves. Progreso is in the department of Canelones, probably the country’s premier wine region in the south of the country. This is a gently undulating, low altitude environment where irrigation is rarely if ever necessary. These wines are a real eye-opener, offering a spectrum of styles from some quite unexpected grape varieties; the common theme being lovely concentration, open fruit, intelligent balance and impressive length.
