Winemaker Notes

This Malbec was born as a result of a precise fermentation process control, a long maceration of 30 days and 8 months of ageing in oak barrels. It has a deep violet color typical of the Malbec wines, with excellent structure and soft tannins. Very well balanced, a long finish, and with a reminiscence of ripe fruits. Our oenologist highlights the intense plum and red fruit aromas with a hint of vanilla, chocolate and coffee.

Wine Enthusiast
Begins in chunky, jammy fashion but soon it finds a classier groove. The berry aromas are big and inviting, while the palate is smooth, cushioned and deep, with standard but attractive berry and black plum flavors. Long on the finish, with the sum exceeding each part.

Image of winery
In our winery we use grapes from our own vines grown in "La Alborada", "El Retorno" and "San Antonio" vineyards. Together they amount to 270 acres (110 hectares) and they are located in the privileged areas of Luján de Cuyo, Maipú and Tupungato. Their altitudes range from 2,600 to 3,950 feet (800 to 1.200 meters) above sea level.

The soils are of alluvial origin, ranging from deep to shallow, rocky, with good drainage and moderate fertility. The weather is mild and dry, with sunny days and cool nights; and with a wide thermal amplitude between daytime and night-time, thus contributing to an excellent tannin development and a very good color and aroma concentration in our grapes.
