Two of Argentina's finest, most representative red grape varieties. Malbec has become emblematic in Argentina, having found the ideal conditions in which to grow, optimising its qualities and producing powerful wines that are rich in colour.

With the contributiosn of the Merlot variety, a special aromatic potency has been achived, imparting a characterictic that differentiates it from other wines with similar qualities

Winemaker 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. We do 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 first 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
