- Tasting Note: A benchmark Malbec from Patagonia. Complex nose of lush plum, cured meat, earth, nutmeg and clove. On the palate it is elegant and warming
- Food Matching: Try it with stuffed quail with a balsamic jus & roasted garlic potato cake.
- Vineyard: The vineyards are in General Roca, Alto Valle del Rio Negro in Patagonia, one of the most southern regions in the world. The climate has a big temperature amplitude, whereby the nights are very cold and days intensely sunny. Another good influence for grape growing is the strong winds coming from the Antarctic, which have a cooling effect as well as keeping the risk of disease very low. The grapes are carefully hand picked for this wine before transportation to the winery in small crates.
- Vinification: Hand picked grapes are fermented in stainless steel tanks and the wine is then aged in new French and American oak casks for 12 months. After bottling, the wine is aged for a further 6 months at the winery before release.
