TERROIR & SOIL STRUCTURE: 100% Bonarda Argentina grapes come from high-trellised vineyards located in a unique microclimate in the area of Medrano and Carrizal de Abajo, Mendoza. This area sits slightly higher than the neighboring vineyards to the north, at 800 m. The low fertility soils help control vigor, and the deep soils with good drainage facilitate root development. WINEMAKING: Vinified in 300hl stainless steel tanks with temperature control for a duration of 10 days from crushing to pressing, with daily rack-and-return for a gentle extraction. The wine goes through malolactic fermentation, receiving no oak treatment in order to preserve freshness and to represent a pure expression of the grape. TASTING NOTES: A luminous red-purple hue and expressive red and black fruits on the nose provide a strong first impression of the unique Bonarda Argentina grape. On the palate the wine is fresh and lively, with a silky, smooth mouthfeel and nice volume. This wine receives no oak treatment in order to show the purest expression of the Bonarda grape. Enjoyed best at temperatures from 60-64 °F.
