The grapes come from our single vineyard located in Vistaflores, Tunuyán, Uco Valley at 1054 m.a.s.l. (3428 ft). We have a sandy loam soil in the higher levels of the vineyard and stones in the lower parts so we can divide the vineyard into parcels thus generating greater diversity. This allows us to produce a greater variety of wines from the same vineyard. The drip irrigation system in our vineyard sources from the melting snow of the high peaks.
The grapes were harvested the first two weeks of April. Produced in concrete ovoid vessels with a short cold maceration for 24 hours. 7-day fermentation at 28-30 °C with native yeasts to preserve the influence of its terroir. Total maceration 21 days. Aged in used oak barrels for 9 months.
Intense reddish tones. Spicy and highly complex fruit. Chocolate and sweet aromas from the aging in French oak also stand out. In the mouth it presents volume, given the perfect maturity of this harvest, with moderate alcohol and balanced natural acidity.
The concentration of flavors and the persistencemake of this, a typical Cabernet franc of cold areas.
