VITICULTURE: The grapes for this wine come mainly from Mendoza clone low yield, known for its concentration of flavor and crunchy acidity; the balance came from Clone 95. The majority of the fruit came from shallows of Brancott Valley and Fairhall, grown on gravelly soils, clay-clay, the rest came from Renwick and Rapaura, cultivated in young alluvial soils containing high proportions of ubiquitous stones of greywacke river of New Zealand. Most of the vineyards have been trained using a VSP trellis double-barreled (vertical positioning of the shot) with the balance of the canopy Scott Henry divided management.
WINE: The vineyards have been hand-picked separately at high levels of maturity and whole cluster pressed with very low soaking cycles. The resulting juice was slightly stabilized and transferred into French oak barrels (20% new).
The juice was fermented with indigenous yeasts spontaneously, the final phase continued for many months. The wine has received occasional lees stirring and underwent a complete malolactic fermentation. He has been transferred from the oak after 18 months and bottled in November 2015 with alcohol of 14, 5%, pH 3, 28 and acidity of 6, 0 g / l.”
