The Wine

Timeless wines that are the spirit and soul of our terroir at Finca La Anita. Extraordinary wines to drink and age.


This Cabernet Sauvignon is vinified from carefully selected grapes at our Finca in Agrelo, Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza. The vines are over 40 years old located around 900 meters above sea level and have a low yield (4 to 5 t / ha).

Surface irrigation.


Vintage Overview

A classic vintage in Mendoza; dry, fresh and sunny with moderate yields throughout the region from the lowest to the highest areas. This, together with lower rainfall than usual, resulted in fruit with optimal balance, good levels of natural acidity, lovely aromatic expression and soft tannins.


Winemaking

Fermented in stainless steel tanks with selected cultivated yeast. Malolatic fermentation occurs spontaneously at controlled temperatures.

Winemaker

Soledad Vargas

12 months in new and one year old French and American medium toasted oak barrels.


Tasting Note

Bright shiny ruby ​​red colour. Intense and powerful with notes of pepper, clove and lashings of ripe fruit. Subtle smoky notes and dark chocolate add complexity. Long full and soft finish.
