Winemaker´s Notes

Wine-growing: In order to moderate the natural force of the malbec we adjust the watering of the plant to make it live with a mild water stress. Wedo a green harvest to promote concentration and maturation of the grapes that remain. The harvest date is defined according to tasting tests results.
Harvest: The grapes were handpicked into 20 kg crates during the rst week of April and then taken to the winery where they were sorted by hand.
Vinification: Partially fermented in 400 Litre French oak casks with a rotation system. Postfermentative maceration of one month. Malolactic fermentation at 22 °C with weekly stirring. Elimination of 40% of the juice.
Ageing: Aged for 24 months in new French oak barrels.

Tasting Notes:

Intense red-maroon colour. Intense red fruit notes, equilibrated with coffee notes due to the stay in barrels. Complex, voluminous, with mature tanins, equilibrated,
highlighting the red fruits with black flowers notes and with a persistent ending with
coffee notes."
