Blend: 100% Malbec
Location: Cafayate Valley, Salta
Altitude: 1,800 M.A.S.L.
Tasting Note: A nose of damson, liquorice and sweet spices leads to a complex palate. Firm yet structured tannins add weight and texture to this well rounded wine; black pepper, plums and toasty oak flavours can all be found here.
Vinification Process: After hand picking the fruit undergoes a cold maceration for 3 to 4 days. Fermentation with selected yeasts at controlled temperatures between 24° and 26°C with twice daily remontages and one delestage. Total maceration is for 3 weeks and includes 100% malolactic fermentation. Then this malbec is rested in oak barrels (50% French, 50% American) for 8 months at a controlled temperature between 15° and 18°C
Food Match: Serve with a slow cooked lamb shoulder
A fresh wine with a lovely hue, bursting with aromas of ripe guava, pineapple, kiwi, green apple and a hint of strawberry, ending with a well-balanced acidity and a lingering finish.
A Sancerre highlighted by its typicity with a delicate nose with aromas of white flesh fruits and citrus which continues on the palate with added exotic fruit, subtle yet powerful.
