Producer Note
The Piattelli Vineyards lie in the foothills of the Andes Mountains, where the century
old vines are irrigated by the pure waters melting from the snow crested peaks;
significant in making their wines exquisite. At Piattelli Vineyards great pride is taken in
crafting wines with a sense of place, as each region has distinct terroirs and
microclimates. Led by head winemaker Valeria Antolin, the wines are produced
through her passionate pursuit of perfection. Their gravity fed winery in Cafayate
honours their commitment to sustainable practices. Piattelli Vineyards practises
sustainable farming and their Mendoza vineyards are USDA certified organic. The
grapes are cultivated with arid clean air, crystal clear water and nutrient rich soil
and their award winning wines are produced with wisdom, precision and care.


Vintage
2020 offered excellent climatic conditions; there were no incidences of frost or hail, so
the vines followed their natural growth progression. The warm, dry weather
throughout the growing period resulted in healthy, vibrant fruit full of varietal
characteristics.


Vineyard
The vines are grown at high altitude in Cafayate, situated at 1,700 metres above sea
level surrounded by the Andes Mountains. Cafayate is one of the highest regions in
the world suitable for viticulture and this high altitude is what defines the terroir of the
region. 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 concentrated grapes
bursting with flavour but with a balanced structure. The soils are formed of many
geological layers.


Winemaking
The grapes were hand-picked and manually sorted to ensure no green material or
imperfect fruit entered the must. Alcoholic fermentation took place in stainless steel
tanks at 24° to 28°C, with selected yeasts and lasted for two weeks. The wine was
transferred to seasoned oak barrels where it was aged for eight months.


Tasting Note
This opulent and smooth cool-climate Malbec delivers delightful aromas of ripe
blackberry complemented by a touch of spice. Beautifully balanced with bright fruit
flavours, the palate is marked by its structure and has an intense, spicy finish.
