The grapes were vinified in French oak vats of 1,000 litre capacity. Maceration of five days took place before fermentation with indigenous yeasts at controlled temperatures of between 26 to 28°C. Post fermentation maceration lasted 10 days, to extract the desired levels of colour, flavour and fine tannins. 50% of the wine was aged in first, second and third-use barrels; the remaining 50% was aged in French oak foudres of 1,000 litre capacity for 18 months.

Winery

The old vines were planted in Las Compuertas in Lujan de Cuyo in 1908. The vines are meticulously cared for and undergo de-leafing and precise pruning during January. The manual harvest takes place in small trays of 20kg in order not to damage the grapes. A second manual sorting takes place before vinification to ensure the best grapes are selected. "This wine is made in honor of all the immigrants who planted, worked, and taught us, gave us the blessing of our flagship varietal, who for over 100 years lived in this land, which has taken a unique identity in the world".
