  • This wine displays a concentrated and powerful profile with an opulent texture. It presents notes of liquorice, dark chocolate, and black fruits leading to a sustained and exquisitely rich finish. It is a wine of exceptional complexity, concentration, and elegance, with aromas of wild blackberries, liquorice, black cherries, and floral nuances. Boasting a well-defined structure, it achieves perfect equilibrium, featuring a rounded palate and an elegant finish. It exudes remarkable intensity, evinced by a concentrated and exquisite blend of wild blackberries, liquorice, and spice. Notably, it achieves a harmonious equilibrium on the palate, representing an elegant, velvety-textured wine with supple tannins.

The grapes were meticulously sorted to select the best quality berries, which were then vinified in small concrete vats with wild yeasts. Cold maceration took five days to extract aromas, flavour and colour. The temperature was maintained at 26 to 28°C during fermentation, followed by post-fermentation maceration of 15 days to impart structure and extract the pure fruit flavours. The wine was then transferred into French oak barrels for first, second and third use for 16 months.

Concentrated and powerful, this is a very complex yet elegant wine with aromas of wild blackberries, black cherries, liquorice, and floral notes. It is perfectly balanced with an opulent structure and a rich finish.

The Vineyard Selection is a blend of Malbec from three traditional Mendoza terroirs. The grapes are grown on ungrafted old vines from Vistalba, Perdriel, and La Consulta, where the vines average age 80. The clay loamy soils over rocky subsoil in the Vistalbas vineyard provide good permeability. The vineyard in Perdriel is located along the Mendoza River and has stony soils. The La Consulta vineyard has clay loamy soils, which are low in organic matter and offer good permeability. The diversity of the three terroirs imparts complexity and elegance to the blend. The grapes were hand-harvested in small 20-kilogram cases to maintain the integrity of each cluster.
