Grapes are grown in the Finca Río Seco vineyards located at 1.700 meters above sea level in the Valley of Cafayate, Salta. Surrounded by ancient and magnificent cacti, the vines are 15 years old and produce approx. 7 tones/hectare. Grapes are harvested in the 3rd week of April, by hand in bins of 20 kg. Pre-fermentative maceration for 6 days at 4 ºC. Alcoholic maceration for 15 days at a controlled temperature between 26 ºC and 28 ºC. Post-fermentative maceration for 10 days. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation.
Intense purple in colour with strawberry fruit on the nose, along with wild and exotic spice and hints of figs. These lifted flavours continue to the palate which is full, juicy and drinkable. Berry and chocolatey fruit is backed up by smooth integrated tannins and fresh acidity to create a long finish.
Red meat is the order of the day, with barbecued lamb or chargrilled steak being a good match.
