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 snowmelting of the high peaks.
One part was vinified in ovoid concrete vessels and the other in small stainless steel vessels, with a cold maceration between 48-72 hours. 7-day fermentation at 18-20 C temperature with selected yeasts characteristic of Pinot Noir. The total maceration was 18 days. 80% of the wine was aged in French oak barrels and 20% American oak barrels for 9 months. 6 months aged in the bottle before releasing.
It has a soft color with violet sparkles and bright reflections. Ripe berries and a floral touch of roses aromas are perceived. In the mouth it provides a sweet entry with a gentle and unctuous body of medium high intensity, balanced with a fresh acidity. It has a long and silky finish.
Total acidity: 5.32 g/l
