100% Malbec Valle de Uco & Luján de Cuyo
Vineyards in Valle de Uco and Luján de Cuyo. Altitude between 2,306- and 3,927-feet elevation. Semi-desert climate.
The 2018 vintage was characterized by excellent climactic conditions throughout the growing season. Temperatures within the historical averages, minimal rainfall, and a larger thermal amplitude compared to previous years resulted in a characteristic growing season for Mendoza. The excellent health conditions of the vineyard allowed for a harvest of highquality fruit with good color and concentration. The harvest began on February 16th with Chardonnay de Los Árboles,Tunuyán and ended on April 20th with Cabernet Sauvignon de El Peral, Tupungato.
Fermented with selected and native yeasts in 8- and 17- ton closed-top stainless-steel tanks. Aged in American oak barrels (10% new) for 8 months. Bottled in February 2019. Unfined.
Bright and deep purple color. Aromas of black fruit reminiscent of fresh plum mixed with graphite notes. On the palate the
wine is balanced and energetic, with sweet and round tannins and long finish.
