The grapes were manually picked at optimum maturity levels and then meticulously sorted by hand to only vinify the best grapes. A percentage of the clusters were destemmed and a proportion was left as whole clusters. Fermentation took place with natural yeasts in open, square vats without any additions at controlled temperatures of between 26 to 28°C and lasted several weeks. 100% of the wine was matured in seasoned French oak barrels for 12 months, until the following harvest.

Winery

The Vistalba vineyards are located in Lujan de Cuyo and are situated at an altitude of 1,050 meters above sea level. The continental climate is characterized by cold winters and mild summers, with warm days and cool nights. The heat assists in the promotion of sugar levels in the ripening grapes, while the coolness of the night retains the acidity level, achieving healthy and balanced berries. The average rainfall is 200mm and the traditional technique of flooding is used for irrigating the vines. The average age of the vines is 60 years; planted as espalier (vertical shoot position) resulting in a naturally low yield which results in a fresh wine of great concentration. The Vistalba soils are clay, loamy soils above the rocky subsoil. This soil has good drainage, promoting the healing and growth of roots. Deleafing and green harvesting take place in December, with a manual harvest taking place in small trays of 20 kilograms.
