2016 Decero Malbec continues with the style that characterises 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.

The signature wines of Decero are three varietal wines: Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. As with each of the wines of Finca Decero, they bear the distinct hallmark of our unique Remolinos Vineyard. The tapestry of soils enabled us to plant the vines on the soil most suited to each variety, helping each wine show their classic varietal expression. Located at the highest part of the Agrelo (1050m/3500ft), Remolinos Vineyard experiences distinctly cool nights which are felt in the fresh acidity and overall elegance of the wines. The subtle nuances of these wines reflect the year-round, world-class attention to detail across the Finca Decero estate. In contrast to traditionally heavier styles of wine from Argentina, Decero has carved out a distinct profile as elegant, balanced wines which are extremely well suited to food pairing.

In recent years, 2015 Decero Malbec was named #34 in the Top 100 Wines of the 2017 (Wine Spectator), 2017 Decero Malbec was positioned #2 in Best Value Malbec / Malbec Blends of the New World and 2015 Decero Cabernet Sauvignon was positioned #1 Best Value Cabernet Sauvignon / Cabernet Blends of the New World (Wine Specator 2019).

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 expresses itself in high acidity, lower than normal alcohol and fresh flavours.

Remolinos Vineyard, Agrelo

Located at 3500 feet, in the renowned Mendoza appellation of Agrelo, our one-of-a-kind Remolinos Vineyard takes its name from ‘Remolinos’ – whirlwinds which keep the grapes dry and in perfect condition before being handpicked each vintage.

Yield   3.5 tons per acre.
Canopy   Leaf plucking of east facing canopy; cluster thinning to 1-2 clusters per shoot.
Harvest Date   Handpicked April 5th – 23rd, 2016.

Winemaking

2 Sorting Tables   Cluster selection pre-destemmer; berry selection post-destemmer.
