E.S. Vino Malbec Tupungato Mendoza Finca Sophenia 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Attractive red colour with violet hues. Aromas of intense ripe fruit, cherries, blackberries, blueberries, and fresh plums, combined with spicy and floral hints. A wine of good intensity, concentration and long aftertaste. This wine comes from vineyards by the Andes in Tupungato, Mendoza, one of the highest regions in Argentina at 4000 feet altitude. Wines from Tupungato typically impart floral aromas, in particular violets, with long sunny days and very cool nights combine to give perfect conditions for the vine. The wine is aged in French and American oak barrels for 3-4 months. No fining is used in the winemaking, therefore the wine is suitable for vegetarians and vegans. The E.S. Vino perfectly complements BBQ meats both in spicy and sweet sauces and game dishes like venison, hare and wild boar.

Following the advice of Michel Rolland, Finca SOPHENIA has made its dream true: preparing great wines, in a genuinely unique “terroir” located at the foothills of the Andes. With a distinctive architectural profile, the winery is equipped with the latest French technology related to the reception, crushing, pressing and vinification processes. White grapes are cooled before they are crushed, and sometimes, skin contact is performed, for a short period of time, in order to achieve a good extraction of the aromas. Crushed red grapes are placed by gravity in stainless steel vats. They are cooled to make a cold pre-maceration process to extract the finest aromas and flavors, and later they are vinified with selected yeasts. Post-fermentation macerations are generally long to allow the extraction of the best properties from the grapes skins. The wines obtained are aged in French or/and American oak barrels, delivering wines of highest complexity. Read less
