2016 Decero Malbec continues with the style that characterizes our Remolinos Vineyard, displaying intense violet aromas over a core of red fruits with notes of cherries and raspberries. A medium-bodied, very well balanced wine with fresh acidity, it shows supple and elegant tannins that benefit from 14 months maturation in French oak barrels.

Finca Decero, once a bare patch of soil in the Argentine foothills of the Andes, is now our one-of-a-kind vineyard, where each vine is nurtured by hand and our winemaking is without compromise.  As Decero means ‘from scratch’, we are fortunate to be free from constraints of tradition, and we have developed an ‘amano’ or ‘by hand’ approach that is human, sustainable and sensitive to natural differences.  We try to tread lightly in an environment that we have come to know intimately, almost inch by inch.  Only in this way can the unique natural attributes of the Remolinos Vineyard, and of Agrelo, shine through in our single vineyard wines, handcrafted from scratch.

The forecast of the 2016 vintage was set to be similar to the cool, rainy 2015 vintage.  With this in mind, we plucked leaves not only on the east facing but also on the west facing canopy to ensure good airflow in face of cool rains.  In reality, the intermittent rains stopped in January and the dry February and March saw phenolic ripeness achieved.  The vintage is expresses itself in high acidity, lower than normal alcohol and fresh flavours. 2016 VINTAGE REMOLINOS VINEYARD, AGRELO
