Piedra Negra owes its name to the black stone soils of the Andean foothills, where the vineyard is located. The grapes come from the Chacayes vineyard in Vista Flores, set at an altitude of over 1000m. It is the perfect expression of Malbec, typically Argentinean, full of elegance and refinement.
In order to temper the natural vigor of the Malbec variety, short pruning is carried out at the end of winter, followed by green harvesting during the summer to improve the concentration and maturity of the remaining grapes. After hand harvesting, the clusters and grapes are sorted on a vibrating table. The grapes are given a cold maceration for three days. Fermentation was conducted with indigenous yeasts at a controlled temperature in concrete vats, and the wine received a post-fermentary maceration for two weeks. The wine was the racked into new French oak barrels and aged for 18 months.
"Lurton's 2007 Piedra Negra Malbec was sourced from a single vineyard in Vista Flores. It was fermented with native yeasts and aged for 18 months in first use French oak. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it delivers an expressive bouquet of toasty oak, pencil lead, lavender, exotic spices, incense, plum, blueberry, and black cherry confiture. Medium- to full-bodied, dense, and richly fruity, this plush offering will be at its best from 2013 to 2022."
