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; significant 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. 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.

Vintage

2017 was an excellent vintage in Salta. The weather throughout the growing season was warm and dry, with no spring frosts. The temperatures were slightly cooler towards the end of the summer, but then they rose just before harvest ensuring the berries reached optimal maturity. The grapes were harvested in perfect health and are bursting with flavour.

Vineyard

From high in the Andes surrounding Salta come Piattelli's Cafayate wines, grown at an elevation of over 5,890 feet. The distinctively colourful northwest 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

The grapes were carefully selected and then each variety was vinified separately. Fermentation took place in small, 25,000 litre stainless steel tanks, maintaining the aromatics and purity of fruit of each variety. The wine was then aged for eight months in French and American Oak barrels, adding oak spice complexity to the final blend.

Tasting Note

Intense and deeply coloured with hues of violet and contours of black that create a fierce scarlet colour, this wine shows spicy and ripe red fruit aromas enhanced by eucalyptus and fig notes. A wine with great impact, combining its ripe, firm and intense tannins, with a bold structure, balancing acidity and a long, persistent finish.

Serving Suggestion

Accompanies rich dishes such as hearty stews, it is also excellent with game and mature cheeses.
