The grapes were harvested at optimal levels of maturity. Carefully sorted, the berries were transferred into small concrete vats with indigenous yeasts. Cold maceration lasted for five days, followed by fermentation at controlled temperatures of between 26° to 28°C. A long post-fermentation maceration lasted for 20 days, ensuring the extraction of colour, flavour and structure. 50% of the wine was aged in first, second and third-use barrels, while the remaining 50% was aged in French oak vats of 1,000 litres.

Winery

This Merlot was sourced from forgotten vines that are 60 years old. This rediscovered vineyard is situated along the Rio Negro's riverside in Allen, Rio Negro, Patagonia. Situated on the 39° latitude south, the sunlight exposure can be intense, but the nights are cool. These diurnal temperature swings, encourage a longer ripening period and flavor concentration in the berries. The ungrafted vines are grown in sandy, clay loam soils are cultivated traditionally with a Vertical Shoot Positioning training system, and are irrigated via flooding.
