Intense red color with a purple tinge. The nose shows pronounced wild berries; such as cassis, raspberries and prunes combined with hints of mint. The notes are found as flavour on the palate. The wine is fruit forward, dry, with ripe tannins and a smooth velvety structure. Enjoy with red and white meats, game, firm aged cheese.
This is 100% Malbec from vineyards located in General Roca, Alto Valle del Río Negro, Patagonia. The grapes are handpicked and undergo a cold pre-fermentation maceration for 48-72 hours followed by alcoholic fermentation at a controlled temperature of 25° to 27°C in 9.000-liter concrete vats, for a 12-day period, with periodical use of rackings. Once the malolactic fermentation has finished, the wine is aged until the bottling phase, after which the wine rests another 3 months before its release.
