From the estate's Tupungato vineyard in the Valle de Uco, where winters are harsh, while summers are warm with cool nights. Soils are composed of white calcareous stone and gravels.

Element of cassis, black cherry and spicy cinnamon best describes this opulent nose. The palate is composed of black fruit and a supple tannin structure, great minerality with an elegant precise finish and well integrated notes of oak, with hints of dark chocolate and vanilla. 95% Malbec, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Grapes were hand harvested in selected blocks between 3rd and 10th April. Alcoholic fermentation and extended maceration on skins took place for 20-28 days in small tanks with manual punch downs, daily pump overs as well as délestage. The wine was then aged in French oak barrels (Mercurey Tonnellerie, Sylvain and Tarransaud) for 10 months with gentle racking, before it was bottled unfiltered.

Vinification details

Grapes were hand harvested in selected blocks between 2nd and 8th April. Alcoholic fermentation and extended maceration on skins took place for 30 days in both small tanks and open-top barrels with manual punch downs for better extraction and a lush and broad mouthfeel. The wine was then aged in French oak barrels (Mercurey Tonnellerie) for 12-14 months with gentle racking, before it was bottled unfiltered.
