Tasting notes

Sweet aromas on the nose. Notes of dark fruits, cassis, dark chocolate and vanilla. The wine is well structured with its firm tannins. The palate is full bodied with a persistent length.

Producer

EL ESTECO

Vinification and aging

Concentrated bunches of small grains are manually harvested. A second hand picked selection is made. Pre-fermentative macerations at 8°C in French oak vats. Indigenous and selected yeasts are used for alcoholic fermentation, at a temperature from 26°C to 30°C, and a short post fermentative maceration process is carried out totalizing. Malolactic fermentation takes place in new French oak barrels where the wine is aged for 15 months. The wine is bottled with a slight filtration process and aged for an extra of 6 months.

Terroir

Sandy alluvial soil, irrigation from the Andes, high sun exposure; low humidity; and broad thermal amplitude.
