The estate’s vineyards are located in Cafayate in the very heart of the Calchaquí Valley, distinguished for being one of the highest wine regions in the world. The climate is very dry, with just 150 millimetres of rain in an average year and huge diurnal temperature fluctuations of around 20°C. The soils here are rocky, poor and sandy so the roots of the vines are forced to dig deep to find the vital nutrients and water they need, which results in fruit with hugely concentrated flavour.After careful sorting by hand at the winery, the grapes underwent four days of cold maceration. This was followed by a slow alcoholic fermentation with maceration on the skins lasting between 18-20 days which extracted good levels of colour and tannins. Malolactic fermentation took place in stainless-steel tanks before 25% of the wine was aged in French oak barrels for a period of 10 months prior to blending and bottling.

Tasting Note

Deep ruby red in colour with a purple hue, this wine displays intensely fruity red berry aromas of raspberries and cherries, floral notes and a touch of spice and chocolate. Well structured, fresh and fruity on the palate with soft, rounded tannins and a long velvety finish.
