Harvest Note
The 2018 vintage was a particularly exciting vintage with ideal growing conditions following the cooler 2016 and 2017 vintages. The growing season was warm and dry, which is more typical of an average Mendoza vintage. The temperate weather allowed for better quality, but also greater quantity of grapes as well. The grapes were able to ripen evenly and harvest took place 10-14 days ahead of the previous two vintages.
Tasting Note
This Malbec has intense red fruit aromas, specially plums, with hints of vanilla and a subtle trace of coffee. It is young, explosive and bright in mouth. Fruit and wood flavors can be perceived thanks to its sweet and round tannins.
