For this Malbec, they selected vineyards of an average age of 30 years. The characteristics of the soils and the force of the vines achieve the perfect balance of concentration and freshness that they need for this line of wines, as the grapes allow them to bring the maximum points of maturity between aromas, sugar and phenols.
Entire berry fermentation takes place in small concrete vats, over 7 days at 25°C, four pump overs a day. The wine undergoes malolactic fermentation and 30% is aged for 8-10 months in French oak.
A ripe, juicy and rich wine displaying concentrated dark fruits, a savoury complex edge, full bodied with rounded tannins and spice on the finish.
Roast beef or venison, barbequed lamb or pork, steak, game, cheddar cheese
