A rich and inky red with aromas of black fruits, cedar
and a touch of smoke. Intense and fruit forward on the

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
The 2019 growing season was warm and dry. The temperatures rose during the
summer but the cooler temperatures in the evenings refreshed the vines and
encouraged a long maturation which resulted in fruit with concentrated varietal fruit
flavours with balancing freshness.


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.
