Fermentation took place with selected yeasts in stainless steel tanks at a controlled and lasted for 10 days. Pump overs and délestages (rack and return) were implemented during fermentation, to achieve the desired levels of extraction and homogenization. Pressing followed immediately without an extended maceration. Malolactic conversion took place in stainless steel tanks, before being transferred to third-use oak barrels for maturation lasting eight months.

A mouth-filling, powerful wine with rich blackberry fruits and hints of spice. Concentrated fruit flavors are balanced by a fresh palate with a chalky texture, through to a full-flavored finish.

The vines are grown at high altitudes in Cafayate, situated at 1,700 metres above sea level. It is one of the highest regions in the world suitable for viticulture and this high altitude is what defines the terroir. The vines are exposed to intense sunlight which results in the grapes forming thicker and darker skins to protect themselves from the ultraviolet rays; leading to more colour and flavour concentration in the grapes. The diurnal temperature difference results in an extended ripening season, producing flavoursome grapes with balancing acidity. The trellised vines are grown with minimal intervention in alluvial and sandy loam soils.
