Tasting Notes



VEGAN FRIENDLY!

In view, we observe an intense red color with violet reflections. It has a intense nose with red fruits aroma and toasted bread notes. The palate is soft and kind with round tannins and nice oak combination.

Winemaker Notes

Hight of the vinyard: 1.050 mts. above sea level. Soil: Limestone, alluvial origin with gravel in the subsoil, originating from a very rocky soil. Climate: Continental with low average rainfall (200 mm. per year). Harvest: Manual, in 18 Kg plastic bins. Production: Double selection of the grapes, fermentation at 24º-28ºC, in 100-150hl inox tanks, maceration up to 30-45 days, depending on tastings and natural malolactic fermentation. The Yepun vineyard has a unique shallow sandy soil which we prefer for our most elegant Malbec. Each plant is carefully monitored with drip irrigation to give us the maximum fruit and structure. We limit the number of bunches per plant to achieve an intensity of fruit coupled with exotic floral bouquet finishing with silky tannins and a complex finish.
