Winemaker's Notes:

Don Tiburcio is composed of our blend, with 18 months barrel, plus an incorporation of Malbec 2002 to reach a balance in color, aroma and flavors. With this wine Benegas introduced a younger product that shows up the flavors of the grape while keeping the fineness provided by the oak casks. WINEMAKER: Federico Benegas Lynch. WINEMAKER CONSULTANT: Michel Rolland. ORIGIN: Mendoza, Argentina. VINEYARD AGE: 35 years average. HARVEST: Harvest is manual and transportation is carried out in 15-17 kg plastic cases. PRODUCTION: The average yield is of 4.486 kg of grape per hectare for the Cabernet Sauvignon, 6.203 kg of grape per hectare for the Cabernet Franc, and 6.431 kg of grape per hectare for Merlot. 40.000 bottles total production. WINE MAKING METHODS: Raceme and grape selection, cold maceration, fermentation in small pools with controlled temperatures. CONSERVATION: The wines base is kept in oak barrels for a period of 18 months -10 months as a pure varietal and 8 months as a Blend-. The rest (Malbec) is wine that is kept during 8 months in oak barrels until the final cut, when Don Tiburcio is born. CHEMICAL COMPOSITION: Total acidity: 4.68 PH: 3.85 SENSORY PROFILE: Color: Shinny with combined shades of purple from the Malbec and touchs of ruby typical of cask wines- Aroma: Predomination of mature red fruits and a touch of chocolate vanilla provided by the Blend. Taste: Intense, fruited, with soft tannins and an impressive and persistent finale. RECOMMENDED TEMPERATURE: 15ºC to 17ºC.
