Wine Description

(2008 Vintage) This wine is bottled without fining or filtering. There is additional risk in this, but we prefer not to stripe the wine of subtle flavors and aromas.

There is additional risk in this, but we prefer not to stripe the wine of subtle flavors and aromas. The formation of deposits in the bottle will be noticeable after some cellaring time. We strongly recommend decanting this wine at least an hour before drinking. Intense, pure, full colours and young aromas. This wine completes our vision of Malbec. We wish to honour the insignia variety of Mendoza. We want to emphasize all the characteristics of this unique cepage. Our work in the vineyards reinforces leaf system over root system, and emphasizes the soul of the fruit. Our objective is to preserve the vertebral column of variety as the first step of a trilogy that continues in ascending stairs with Quimera – a design wine - and Finca Altamira, Finca Bella Vista and Finca Mirador, through which we showcase the expresion of terroir. The wine was aged during 10 months in French Oak barrels. We took special care to preserve the necessary balance between wood and fruit without losing its spontaneity. (hide)
