A 100% Malbec grown in vineyards in Valle de Uco and Luján de Cuyo which are situated between 2,300-3,900 feet above sea level (700 t0 1,070 metres). The must is fermented with selected and native yeasts in 8- and 17- ton closed-top stainless steel tanks then aged in American oak barrels 10% of which are new, for 9 months. Bottled unfined in February 2021.
The wine is violet red with black tones. It displays an attractive nose with aromas of fresh black fruits and prunes. The palate displays good concentration and balance, with sweet yet supple tannins.
“Plenty of blue fruit and violets with some black licorice and hints of asphalt. Medium-bodied with a solid core of fruit and linear, firm tannins that frame the wine. Very fine texture. Real. Drink now or hold.”
