A prestigious wine which has been made with grapes from 60 year old vines. Fairly round and inviting, this wine is slightly firm around the edges with plenty of fruit and consistent tannins. Clean, fruitful on the nose. Displays aromas of quince and plum with a touch of elegant oak. Blackberry and licorice fruit in the mouth. Rich, long with accents of vanilla and lingering oak. This Malbec will leave you with a rich and lingering finish. The grapes are hand picked using small baskets. To obtain its maximum expression, the wine is softly filtered before being bottled. The wine is aged in New French Oak barrels for 14 months. Once it is bottled, it remains in temperature controlled conditions for another 6 months prior to release.
Food Pairing: red meat, pasta and mature cheese.
14 months in oak
