Benegas Estate Single Vineyard Finca Libertad Syrah Mendoza 2012

Editorial Review by Snooth Editorial:

Richly aromatic, darkly fruited aromas of black currant and black cherry, pleasant spice and light flower petal notes. Smooth and bold, creamy textured and tannic, with a sheen of vanilla and oak coating fruit flavors of black currant, blackberry and an endless cacao and brown sugar finish. Lots of depth and complexity with very expressive fruit and excellent texture. 90 pts

It is located in the Luján de Cuyo region, carril Ardoz (off route 60), 300 meters from its intersection with the south access to Mendoza, and at 5 kilometers from Finca Libertad. This old winery belonged to the family of Gladys Alurralde Norton, who was the mother of Federico J. Benegas Lynch. Agustín Alvarez, Governor of the Province of Mendoza in those years, finished the construction in 1901. It is one of the few historic relics that remain from the old Mendoza of the end of the XIXth century. It was made of adobe with a stone underground cave to stow casks and it has spacious areas to store bottles both in summer and in winter, for temperature variations are minimal. Read less
