Description

Deep red ruby colour. A huge aromatic complexity composed mostly by berries, raspberry, and floral notes followed by liquorice, cloves and leather. Ripe tannins, balanced with acidity and astringency. Long and elegant finish. It can easily age for a decade or more.

This is a marriage made in heaven! It is made from a field blend of Argentina’s most iconic and widely planted varietals. Though these grapes mature at different times, the Malbec three weeks before the Bonarda, they harvest both together (the Malbec ten days later than typical, the Bonarda ten days early). Planted in alternating rows, the Malbec brings luscious sweetness while the Bonarda provides firm acidity. This 1946 vineyard blend was designed with this in mind, even though it took many years before they realized what their predecessors were aiming to achieve.
