Bodega Familia Schroeder Malbec Saurus Patagonia 2006

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Opaque black-purple color. A touch sweaty at first with a gentle spicy, minerally character that is appealing. Layers of savory tea and tar grow in the glass though the nose remains restrained and focused. The entry is big and sweetly fruited with lots of power and dry extract but the intensity of flavors lags a bit. What is in the glass is very appealing blackberry, blackberry seeds, boysenberry, mineral and spice. Has a classy feel with some elegance and solid fleshy fruit on the decent finish. Tannins emerge on the finale. A pretty big wine that may improve with cellaring. 89pts

One of the winery's main distinctive feature is its location on the hillside of a plateau, allowing for a natural blend with natural landscape. This location is reflected in the winery's vertical design, with 5 levels that rise to a total height of 22 meters, allowing for another characteristic of the building: the use of gravity in the winemaking process due to the resulting slope. This gravitational system, employed in the transportation of the raw material (the grape) and the end product (the wine), grants Familia Schroeder's vinification process with an important comparative advantage, offering optimal conditions for handling of these products with minimum usage of pumps. The high final quality is a result of both this modern technology and the committed work of the winery's staff. Read less
