Winemaking in Thomas Schmidheiny's family goes back to his grandparents in Switzerland and, just as Napa had inspired his mother Adda in the 1970s, so too did the Agrelo sub-appellation in
Mendoza capture the heart and mind of Thomas when traveling over the Andes into Argentina 20 years later. In Agrelo, perhaps now
considered the source of Argentina's finest red wines, Thomas instinctively knew that he had found the place to continue the family legacy and to handcraft wines whose allure would lie in being true to their origin. Once a desolate piece of land in the foothills of the Andes, absent of everything but shrubs, Finca Decero is now a one-of-a-kind vineyard where each vine is nurtured by hand and the winemaking is without compromise. The wines are nurtured through the winery and finally blended by winemaker Marcos Fernandez with consultant winemaker Paul Hobbs.
The core intesity of red fruit flavours and pure violet aromas remain the signature of Malbec from our Remolinos Vineyard. Exquisitely balanced by freshness of acidity and an elegant integration of French oak adds complexity to the rich velvety fruit notes of this vintage.
"Big, fleshy and dark in color, with a bold, heavy nose of black fruits, baked richness and sweet characteristics. The palate is chunky and full, with blackberry, baked plum, fig and herbal flavors. A saturdated, lusty style of Malbec that's deep like cake and just about as sweet."
