  • Complex and intense, this Semillon has funky notes of pineapple and orange blossom over a waxy, rich, nutty flavour that goes on forever. This wine has all the seriousness, subtleness, elegance and nuances that old Semillon is capable of. Complex and elegant citrus, white flowers and vanilla aromas lead to a perfectly balanced palate with an elegant finish.
  • Awards 96 pts, Wine Advocate, 2023

The grapes were harvested at perfect maturity levels into small cases of 20kg to maintain the integrity of each cluster. A meticulous selection by hand was performed before a skin maceration of 48 hours at 10°C. 60% of the must was fermented in used French oak barrels and 40% was fermented in concrete eggs, at low temperatures between 14° and 16°C. Maturation lasted for six months with 60% aged in French oak barrels and 40% in concrete eggs.

Winery

This Semillon was sourced from forgotten vines that are over 50 years old. These old vineyards are located in Río Negro in Patagonia, at an altitude of 400 meters above sea level on the 39° latitude south. Sunlight exposure is more intense than in northern areas, but at this latitude, the nights are much colder. This daily diurnal temperature range is excellent for the production of quality grapes; the nightly cooling-off extends the ripening period, allowing the grapes to develop rich varietal characteristics while retaining balancing acidity.
