Producer Note
The Piattelli Vineyards lie in the foothills of the Andes Mountains, where the century
old vines are irrigated by the pure waters melting from the snow crested peaks; a
significant aspect in making their wines exquisite. At Piattelli Vineyards great pride is
taken in crafting wines with a sense of place, as each region has distinct terroirs and
microclimates. Mendoza and Cafayate are two of the best grape growing regions in
Argentina and they wanted to showcase both. Led by head winemaker Valeria
Antolin, the wines are produced through her passionate pursuit of perfection. Their
gravity fed winery in Cafayate honours their commitment to sustainable practices.
Piattelli Vineyards practises sustainable farming and their Mendoza vineyards are
USDA certified organic. The grapes are cultivated with arid clean air, crystal clear
water and nutrient rich soil and their award winning wines are produced with
wisdom, precision and love.
Vineyard
From high in the Andes surrounding Salta come Piattelli's Cafayate wines, grown at
an elevation of over 1,795 metres. The distinctively colourful North West Argentinian
mountains are formed of many geological layers. The splendour of this area, with its
pure water and extreme thermal amplitudes, is that it produces grapes bursting with
flavour, making this not only one of the most beautiful, but also one of the premier
grape growing regions in the world.
Winemaking
Vinified in the gravity flow winery, the primary fruit flavours were maximised as the
grapes were gently pressed by gravity avoiding any harsh and unwanted
characters from the seeds. The fermentation took place at controlled temperatures
in the innovative, curved, concrete egg shaped fermenters, which optimises
circulation and quality by encouraging the juice, pulp and skins into continuous
contact, throughout the fermentation process. This wine is unoaked.
Tasting Note
An attractive and vibrant example of Argentinian Malbec, with its heady mix of
plump, dark, brambly fruits, plum jam notes combined with sweet tannins and a
velvety finish.
Serving Suggestion
A great pairing for a pan-fried steak, tender roasted beef and rich mushroom
risottos.
