This 12 acre vineyard was originally planted with Malbec in 1923. It is managed without irrigation and naturally low yields. The canopy is left to grow freely in order to keep the grape clusters shadowed, allowing the harvest of grapes with high qualitative potential. The composition of this soil results from the degradation of granitic stone in the costal cordillera, with clay and sand in low proportions. Thanks to the proximity of phreatic water it is not necessary to irrigate the vines which have grown their root system to extract the water they need for balanced growth.

Harvest Note
2015 was a warm year, but with a cold and humid spring. This resulted in wines that are ripe, but with fruity notes and intense flavor. The tannins are very soft, the acidity is balanced, and the finish is persistent.
Tasting Note
Deep purple almost black color with glittering highlights. The stylish and complex nose offers a wide array of aromas including blackcurrant and dark cherry mingling with subtle notes of spices. The palate immediately shows all the wine's density and refinement: very forward ripe fruit flavors with perfectly integrated, velvety tannins revealing a remarkable complexity in the structure and excellent balance. The finish is opulent and extremely long.
Food Pairing
Roasted chicken, beef, rosemary, marjoram, sage or pepper.
