100% Malbec mostly from silt-based soils in Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza, supplemented with fruit from Agrelo, which has more clay.
Vinified separately before the final blend was assembled. After a careful double sorting process, the grapes were gently pressed and fermented with indigenous yeasts in order to express each of the selected vineyards. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks between 24-28°C for 10 days. Each tank is tasted three times a day to determine what is needed. The wine is then aged for 12 months in concrete vats.
Characteristic notes of raspberries, red fruits and fresh-picked plums with white pepper. This wine is all about freshness; a supple and juicy palate, with soft yet structured tannins and a long finish.
