Made from the fruit representing the best of the crop. The grapes were hand-picked and destemmed. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks with post-fermentation maceration lasting for two weeks. When fermentation was complete, the wine was racked to first use French oak barrels, where it went through malolactic conversion and was aged for 12 months.

A rich and inky Malbec full of aromas of blueberries, cedar, and spice. Opulent and textured, with a wonderful fruit concentration and beautifully integrated oak, through to a long, persistent finish. 

From high in the Andes surrounding Salta come Piattelli's Cafayate wines, grown at an elevation of over 1,795 metres. The distinctively colourful Argentinian mountains are formed of many geological layers. The splendour of this area is the pure water and extreme thermal amplitudes. The diurnal temperature differences create longer ripening periods, which concentrate the flavours in the grapes, with the cooler evenings encouraging a balancing freshness. Additionally, the grapes develop thicker skins to cope with the intensity of the UV rays at this altitude, which further concentrates the flavours in the wine. This makes this not only one of the most beautiful but also one of the premier grape-growing regions in the world.
