Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
100% ESTATE GROWN FRUIT The grapes from the Pascual Toso Estate, located in one of the best wine growing areas in Mendoza, with vineyards planted in stony, alluvial soil in the Barrancas area of the Maipu district of Mendoza. After hand-harvesting and careful destemming, cold maceration takes place for two days at 46 F. The wine is seeded with selected yeasts and fermentation takes place at 78º F between 15-20 days. Maceration occurs over an additional 10-15 days. Forty percent of the wine is matured in American oak barrels for eight months in order to provide the wine with its structure. Prior to bottling, the wine is filtered to enhance its vibrant color.


Serving Hints
Excellent to pair with pasta, red and white meats and dishes with any creamy sauces.
