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 sealevel. It is one of the highest regions in the world suitable for viticulture and this high
altitude is what defines the terroir. 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
flavoursome grapes with balancing acidity. The trellised vines are grown with minimal
intervention in alluvial and sandy loam soils.
Winemaking
Fermentation took place with selected yeasts in stainless steel tanks at controlled and
lasted for 10 days. Pump overs and délestage (rack and returns) were implemented
during fermentation, in order to achieve the desired levels of extraction and
homogenisation. Pressing followed immediately without an extended maceration.
Malolactic conversion took place in stainless steel tanks, before being transferred to
third use oak barrels for eight months’ maturation.
