TASTE
Intense violet aromas and purity of raspberry and red fruit flavours, with a kick of white pepper, a very assured, sleek texture, and a long, energetic finish.

PRODUCER
What was once a bare patch of soil in the foothills of the Andes has been transformed into a remarkable single-vineyard estate. Decero, meaning “from scratch”, consists of one hundred hectares of vineyard newly planted in 2000 on this favoured site. The winery is state-of-the- art, having been equipped for the début 2006 vintage, and the gentle, hands-on approach in the vineyard continues throughout the process. The result is wines of elegance and sophistication; seductively textured and freshly aromatic. With such quality emerging after only one vintage, this is definitely a new name to watch.

VINEYARD
Located at over 1050 metres above sea level, in the renowned Mendoza appellation of Agrelo, the Remolinos Vineyard takes its name from ‘remolinos’ – whirlwinds which keep the grapes dry and in perfect condition before being handpicked each vintage. The soils are silty clay over sandy gravels. All the vineyard work is done by hand, without the use of tractors. Natural predators, including owls, are used to combat pests. During picking, there was a cluster selection followed by a second sorting within the small boxes.

WINERY
Following cluster selection pre-destemmer and berry selection post- destemmer, the juice underwent five to seven days’ cold soak, ten days’ fermentation in small, wide stainless steel tanks and fifteen to eighteen days’ extended maceration. It was then gently pressed before going into thirty percent new French oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and a fourteen-month ageing process. Ten percent of the wine was held back in tank to increase floral aroma in the final blend.
