Aroma: Freshly crushed violet flowers envelop a deep core of jam preserves and ripened plums typical of Mendoza´s Vistalba region.

Winemaking: 4 delestages and 10 pumpovers during fermentation enhanced the wine’s extraction. Only the free-run wine is moved to 80% French, 20% American oak barrels; 1/3 new, 1/3 one year old, 1/3 two years old. The wine spends close to twelve months in barrels before being lightly fined with egg whites and bottled.
