The Story

Varietal composition:

50% Malbec, 20% Cabernet Franc, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% PetitVerdot, 5% Merlot.

Grapes Origin:

Malbec: Finca La Encerrada, Gualtallary, Uco Valley. Cab Franc, Cab Sauv, Merlot, Petit Verdot: Finca Libertad, Upper Bank of Mendoza River, Maipu

Harvest time:

Malbec: Last week of April. Cab Franc and Cab Sauv: 2nd fortnight of April. Merlot: End of March. Petit Verdot: 2nd fortnight of March

Winemaking process:

Cold pre-fermentative maceration. Tank fermentation at 25 C . Post fermentative maceration during two weeks. Racking and natural malolactic fermentation in the oak barrels with indigenous yeasts of second use.

Ageing:

Ten months in French oak barrels of 2nd use.

Tasting notes:

Colour: intense deep red colour with ruby hues

Nose: The complexity of the varietal composition of this wine shows in the nose aromas of red and black fruit, spices like white pepper, clove and cardamom. Herbal notes of eucalyptus, thyme and rosemary. The wood ageing rents notes of cocoa and vanilla.

Mouth: A wine with great presence since the entrance. It reaches all its volume with a high impact in the middle mouth, exhibiting round tannins as the result of the five varietals. Long and lingering finish with a slight herbaceous note in the end.

Ageing capacity:

10 years

Maridage:

Due to its volume, we recommend to match with long cooked meals. Due to its thick tannins it is ideal to be joined with red meats and game.
