Tu Yo Tres Cabernet Franc

Posted by

The Tu Yo Tres Cabernet Franc 2022 is a result of the expertise and passion of winemaker Carlos Torres Silva. With over four decades of experience, Silva, a former key figure at Concha y Toro, has truly outdone himself with this Chilean gem.

From the sun-drenched vineyards of the Curico Valley, nestled along the picturesque Rio Claro river, this wine is a product of a challenging yet rewarding year. The 2022 harvest, shaped by drought and soaring temperatures, resulted in a lower yield. However, this scarcity has heightened the quality of the wine, surpassing its predecessors in depth and character.

Upon tasting, the Tu Yo Tres Cabernet Franc reveals itself as medium-bodied, with a vibrant fruitiness that is both refreshing and engaging. The palate is greeted with an abundance of juicy strawberry and black raspberry flavours, each sip bursting with the natural sweetness of the fruits. This lively fruit profile is beautifully balanced with subtle herbaceous notes, adding a layer of complexity that is both intriguing and satisfying.

Priced at £12.99 from Virgin Wines, the Tu Yo Tres Cabernet Franc 2022 offers good value. A great example of Carlos Torres Silva’s mastery in winemaking and the untapped potential of Chilean Cabernet Franc.
