Tasting Notes:
With a deep violet color, this Malbec delights with aromas of plums and black fruits which are complemented by a perfume of herbs and wild flowers. On the palate it is full bodied, balanced, and powerful with elegant tannins that provide a smooth texture and a long, fresh finish.

Vinification: Cold maceration is carried out for the first few days, and then the juice is fermented in a stainless-steel tank.

Aging: The wine is then taken to French oak barrels where it ages for 12 months and undergoes a spontaneous malolactic fermentation.

Food Pairing: Gamey and earthy meat cuts, such as buffalo burgers, ostrich burgers, or even venison.
