A fruit-forward Malbec. Presence of plum and blackberry aromas are complemented by notes of chocolate and tobacco.

Palate

very fresh, with soft and sweet tannins.

Harvest

The summer was mostly warm, but with great thermal amplitude (very hot days followed by very cold days). Yields were relatively normal. The dry harvest season produced grapes in perfect health. With medium to high alcohol levels, and acidity slightly above average, 2019 wines tend to be fresh and elegant.

Winemaking

The grapes were hand-harvested and transported in 300-kilo. Berries were manually selected once in the winery. The juice fermented in small tanks, which allows to carry out the fermentation process in optimal conditions, preserving the characteristics and qualities that the vineyard lends the grapes. Alcoholic fermentation and later maceration lasted around 20 days. Fifty percent of the wine was aged for eight months in French oak barrels and the rest remained unoaked in order to highlight the fruit flavors and aromas, and to maintain its soft and silky tannins. The wine was slightly filtered using cross-flow filtration and cartridges.

Appearance

Intense violet red color.

Food Pairing

White meat, grilled vegetables, and blue cheese.
