Varietal: Malbec 100%
Origin: Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza, Argentina.
Vineyards: The yield of the vineyards is 100 Q/ha., with about 30 year-old low trellis vines watered by furrows with thawing water in well drained stony soils. Located in a wide night-day temperature difference area, the vineyards are at 930 m above sea level with excellent light, typical of the region.
Production process: Grapes are harvested from selected vineyards owing to their high oenological quality, low production and good sanity. Harvesting time is determined by a series of tests and soft fruit tasting. Harvest is manual, grapes are de-stemmed, refrigerated and then sent to fermentation vats, where alcoholic fermentation takes place. When it finishes, maceration starts, the final product being determined through tasting. Once racked, it is in contact with American oak to get a wine characterized by excellent balance between grape attributes and oak.
Alcohol: 13.8% v/v
Organoleptic description: Red with violaceous hues, attractive and intense. Dense and concentrated in the glass. It expresses the typical aromas of red fruit such as plum or ripe cherries and the hints of sweet vanilla and coffee, thanks to the contact with oak.
This malbec is a current example of Mendoza, where the fruity character and medium body of this variety are paired. The kind tannins, thanks to fruit ripeness, round the persistence and final flavours.
A great mate for typical Argentinian grilled meat, stuffed pasta or a la bolognese, spicy meat empanadas, hard cheese, rice with vegetables.
Service temperature: 16ºC to 18ºC.
