Finca La Anita Petit Verdot

2018

The Wine

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


This Syrah 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.
