Nose

Intense and very attractive, the integration of fruit and wood offers an exquisite balance. The nose is packed with rip red cherry and plum, blackcurrant and spicy notes.

Palate

On the palate it is a well-structured wine with long-lingering tannins and a soft mineral flavor. This Terroir of the Uco Valley is a perfect balance between fruit and complexity.

Growing Conditions

From two different farms over 1,000 meters above sea level; - San José a 1.050 m.s.n.m. - Gualtallary: 1.200 m.s.n.m.

Harvest

Pick by hand in bins in three different dates with subsequent sorting and selection of grapes.

Winemaking

San José usually reaches the optimum point weeks before Gualtallary, due to the high altitude of this farm. Starting with the grapes from San Jose in the first days of April and, as every year, we close the harvest with the entrance of grapes from Gualtallary. Both wines are kept separate until the end of maturation in French Oak, moment when the final blend is produced and presented in bottle. Alcoholic in vessels. Three weeks of maceration in contact with grape pomace. Malolactic fermentation in contact with fine sediments.

Aging

Aged in French oak barrels of first and second use for 8 months, followed by 6 months aging in bottle before release.

Food Pairing

Ideal to pair with red meats on the grill, or meals with strong sauces.
