The Barrel Select Line expresses both the fruit attributes, such as freshness and sweetness, along with the smoky influences of oak, which add to the wine’s complexity. This is accomplished by aging a portion of the wine in French oak barrels and then blending with wines aged in stainless steel. As a result, a delicate balance between fruit and oak is obtained, in which the scents and flavors of each blend are combined with the oak’s toasted notes.

Harvest Note
The 2018 vintage was marked by higher volumes, but with optimal ripeness. The quality of the grapes was on par with previous very good-rated vintages. The summer started out warm but then cooled off during the harvest months of February, March and April. This, in addition to the low rainfall, gave rise to early ripening in the fruit, with beautiful natural acidity. The aromatic expression and ripe, fruit flavors on the palate show clearly that the 2018 vintage wines are excellent representations of the unique terroirs of Mendoza.
Tasting Note
Greenish yellow with golden hues. Aromas of green apples and tropical fruit. Complexity given by notes of vanilla, coconut, toast and a smoked touch.
