Pascual Toso Barrancas 2020


This complex, yet well-balanced wine presents an elegant style with hints of ripe plums and raspberry fruit. Gentle tannins and slightly toasted spice and chocolate on the palate move to a long and focused finish.

Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
100% Estate Grown Fruit
Grapes are hand-harvested from the Barrancas Vineyard in the Maipú region of Mendoza – with frank and stony soil. Maceration is conducted over two days at 46° F. The wine is seeded with selected yeasts and ferments at 77-82° F for 10 days. To finish this process, after malolactic fermentation, 100% of the wine is aged in American oak for eight months. It remains in the bottle for four months prior to the release date.

Serving Hints
