Winemaker's Notes:

Intense and brilliant color, with violet reflections. The nose is perceived typicality of Malbec: ripe red fruit and floral aromas. The palate entry denotes a full, soft and lush with sweet tannins and very present, has a final round with notes of cherries, sour cherries and blackberries.
My Notes:

About Antucura:

Antucura means the ancient language of the Pehuenches - the first inhabitants of the area - "Stone of the Sun." We chose this name for our winery and lodge at Vista Flores because the vineyards that give the birth to our beloved wines grow here naturally, among stones and rocks. This special blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot was elaborated with both care and passion. It aged in new French oak barrels for twelve months before bottling, then stored until ready for release.

Our winery mingles with the terroir, the ancient viticultural traditions and the new vinification technologies. Born to be the matrix of super premium and ultra premium wines, our winery counts with top quality controls and extra care. Through a special gravity flow system the grapes are gently pressed and therefore wines are nurtured in unparalleled conditions.
