Mendoza has become one of the most dynamic wine producing regions in the world with an enviable array of grape varieties, many of which are planted at high altitudes. Our vines are located in the Uco Valley where the long summers mean the wines have wonderfully pure tasting fruit, and this Viñalba Rosé is a great example of this. The wine is made to capture the beautiful purity of the grapes and get as much of that flavour as possible into the bottle. Crisp and fruity, this wine has vibrant and refreshing red berry flavours.
The soils in our vineyards are ideal for grape growing with clay loam and have very good permeability. The vines are grown in the foothills of mountain ranges and our estate is at 1200-1500m altitude. The vines are 15 years old on average with yields of 60hl/ha.
Our Viñalba Rosé vines come from high-quality massal-selected vineyards. Our vineyards use low frequency irrigation for controlling vigour and sun exposure to produce high-quality grapes.
The grapes are harvested late February to March by hand into small trays of 20kg to prevent damage and then meticulously sorted in order to select the best grapes for this wine. 80% of the grapes are macerated on their skins for 8 hours, 20% of grapes undergo carbonic maceration. Fermentation takes place over 20 days with selected yeasts at controlled temperature of 14-16°.
