Graffigna Cabernet Sauvignon Centenario 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

WINEMAKING To ensure optimal quality of this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, all the grapes were picked by hand and harvesting was done in the early hours of the morning, when the temperature is cool. The grapes were then carried from the vineyards in small crates where they remained until they reached the press, in order to avoid crushing. After harvest, the Cabernet grapes were macerated in their skins at cold, controlled temperatures for a period of 20 days, allowing the juice to obtain the deep color and intense fresh fruit aromas that is our Cabernet trademark. Following fermentation in 100% stainless steel tanks, maceration continued for another 7 days, obtaining even more aromas and structure. The wine was then aged in oak barrels (85% French Oak and 15% American Oak) for an additional 12 months where it gained complexity and elegance. Three additional months of ageing in the bottle allowed it to achieve its characteristic balance. The result is an elegant, yet powerful wine.

  Graffigna, with a winemaking tradition that spans 140 years, has the honor of being the oldest winery in the Argentine province of San Juan, the second oldest in the country and the first winery in Argentina to sell branded wines. Today, Graffigna is one of Pernod Ricard's four global wine brands and iconic of Argentina's progress as a quality wine producer. In recent years, as part of our philosophy of continuous improvement, Graffigna launched a viticulture study and development process in San Juan with the support of an international team of experts led by Victor Marcantoni and with the consultancy of renowned winemaker Phil Laffer. An ambitious investment plan was also deployed. In order to increase production and storage capacity, cutting-edge agricultural technology, equipment and production techniques were incorporated.   In 2009, Graffigna was named "Winery of the Year" in the USA by The Critics Challenge and Graffigna Centenario became the most awarded Malbec of 2007-2008. Moreover, in 2010, Graffigna's Malbecs (Grand Reserve and Centenario) were awarded with 90 points by acclaimed critic Robert Parker. Today, Graffigna continues to consistently embrace innovation without relinquishing its rich history and tradition. Read less

A more transparent wine than it's California siblings. A seductive grip, it's power being in its longevity rather than strength.
