A rich and inky red with aromas of black fruits, cedar and
a touch of violet. Intense and smooth on the palate with
an opulent and mouthfilling texture.
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
2019 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
From high in the Andes surrounding Salta come Piattelli's Cafayate wines, grown at an
elevation of over 1,795 metres. The distinctively colourful Argentinian mountains are
formed of many geological layers. The splendour of this area is the pure water and
extreme thermal amplitudes. The diurnal temperature differences create longer
ripening periods, which concentrates the flavours in the grapes, with the cooler
evenings encouraging a balancing freshness. Additionally, the grapes develop thicker
skins to cope with the intensity of the UV rays at this altitude, which further concentrates
the flavours in the wine. This makes this not only one of the most beautiful, but also one
of the premier grape growing regions in the world.
Winemaking
Made from the fruit representing the best of the crop. The grapes were hand-picked
and destemmed. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks with post fermentation
maceration lasting for two weeks. When fermentation was complete, the wine was
racked to first use French oak barrels, where it went through malolactic conversion and
was aged for 12 months.
Tasting Note
A rich and inky Malbec full of aromas of blueberries, cedar and spice. Opulent and
textured, with wonderful fruit concentration and beautifully integrated oak, through to a
long, persistent finish.
