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.
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.
