The 2005 vintage was characterized by low production and an excellent harvest for reds, in particular Malbec. A dry and cold winter was followed by a cool spring with regular flowering, despite an initial November frost affecting vineyards towards the south of Mendoza.
Malbec (60%), Cabernet Sauvignon (26%), Merlot (7%), Petit Verdot (7%).
Deep, almost black core with bright violet highlights.
This wine opens with notes of fresh berries combined with blackcurrant and redcurrant, rose and violet, completed by hints of Asian spice such as fresh ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon.
A sensual mouthfeel with great structure supported by soft and elegant tannins and subtle freshness. The increased proportion of Malbec in the blend ensures a great balance between the Cabernet Sauvignon’s structure and Malbec’s freshness.
