Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The grapes come from the Asti and Doña Elsa Estate, situated in Rama Caíida, San Rafael, Mendoza, around 750 meters above sea level. It is an ideal climate for the Cabernet Sauvignon grape because of the warm days and cool nights that are typical of the area. The soil is of sandy/calcareous composition and alluvial origins. Picked by hand, the grapes went through classical crushing and fermentation, with periodic pump- over and maceration on skins for 21 days. It was aged twelve months in French Oak barrels. After stabilization, filtering and bottling, the final wine was bottled-aged an additional four months.
