The Wine

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

This blend is vinified from carefully selected grapes at our Finca in Agrelo, Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza. This blend comes from specifically selected parcels according to their maturity.

The vineyards are located at 900 metres above sea level  and have a natural low yield (4-5 tonnes/hectare. 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

Each variety is fermented separately in stainless steel tanks with selected cultivated yeast. During maceration pump overs and delestage. Post fermentation maceration of 15 days. For the Syrah the pips are removed to avoid stringent tannins. Malolactic fermentation occurs spontaneously at controlled temperatures.
