"This is a brilliant expression of the fruit from Parcel 3, that’s a very pure expression of the variety. It’s dense, serious and compact, with quite a bit of oak, but plenty of structure too. Spice, graphite, some vanilla and dense, compact damson and black fig flavours with a smoky finish. 2017-24."

Product Description:

"Only 377 cases made. 100% Malbec from a single and sole vineyard and parcel, “VIÑA 1924” Parcel 3 - Vistalba, Lujan de Cuyo. Ancient, more than 90 years of age, a traditional vineyard which corresponds to the origins of the viticulture in the area. Grown on low espalier (low vine), pruned according to double Guyot system, with 7,200 plants per hectare, furrow irrigation and ungrafted vines. The vineyard is managed to preserve tradition and resources.

Vinification is performed at the foot of the vineyard, with state-of the art technology and under manual inspection and selection of clusters. Aged in medium-toast French oak barrels for 14 months.

Deep and brilliant rubis red color with blue and purplish hues around the rim. Aromas of plums and fresh red berries evolve in the glass to reveal great complexity and intensity. Delicate floral notes, along with vanilla notes and mild toast flavors. A very soft attack in mouth gives way to complex, intense and concentrated flavors and a lingering aftertaste. Soft and sweet tannins. Remarkable varietal typicity, together with the extraordinary freshness and particular fruity expression typical of the grapes from this vineyard. An elegant and intense wine, complex and balanced. Can age for at least 10 years. It is recommended to decant the wine before serving." -Winery
