TASTING NOTES
An intense nose of black cherry and mulberry fruit leads to a sleek, concentrated palate which offers a tantalising blend of power and mineral elegance.

PRODUCER
In 1885, the Buenos Aires to Mendoza railway opened, cementing the significance of this emerging wine-growing region high in the Andean foothills. Ten years later, Edmund Norton planted the first vines in Mendoza’s Luján de Cuyo district. At 900-1100 metres, the altitude moderates the temperature, causing an extended ripening season, and also expose the vines to more ultraviolet light, which encourages the development of colour and tannin in the black-skinned varieties. The result is whites packed with vibrant flavour and good natural acidity, and well-structured, food-friendly reds.

VINEYARD
Grapes for this wine come from a single vineyard situated at 950 metres above sea level, with vines aged between thirty and fifty years. The fruit is hand-harvested into twenty-kilo baskets, and the berries hand- selected.

WINERY
Cold maceration for five days at 8-10°C was followed by a seven-day fermentation at 25°C and 25-30 days’ post-ferment maceration at 20°C. Following natural malolactic fermentation, the wine was aged for twelve months in a mixture of new and second-use French oak barrels.
