REGION: Lujan de Cujo, Mendoza
VARIETIES: Cabernet Franc
Federico Benegas Lynch was raised at 'El Trapiche', a winery established in 1883 by his great, great grandfather, Don Tiburcio Benegas, one of the original pioneers of Argentine wine. Those of the eagle-eyed amongst you might recognise the family link with Bordeaux (Lynch), so there's some serious winemaking stock here. Cabernet Franc does remarkably well in Mendoza, where the climate is more consistent than in its native Loire Valley. As such, the full fruit potential of this amazing grape comes through.
