PRODUCER: Bodega Familia Schroeder is the result of a pioneer family’s effort that made their dream come true. Located in Patagonia, the estate is a land of extremes. Dry weather, rivers carrying snowmelt water, cool nights and long summer days characterise the climate here. A state of the art gravity flow winery completes the set up in one of the worlds most exciting new wine regions.
WINEMAKING: The grapes are hand harvested, then could soaked for 24 hours. A further 36 hours is spent in a cool, reductive environment in stainless steel tanks. to maximise the extraction of flavour. Alcoholic fermentation is carried out over 13 days at a temperature of 25ºC with selected yeasts. The wine is then allowed a five day post fermentation maceration to soften and integrate the tannins. The wine is matured for 18 months in 100% new French oak barrels.
TASTING NOTES: This blend features a complex nose. Ripe red fruits aromas such as plums, sour berries and cassis, gently combined with floral and spicy nuances. Delicate vanilla and chocolate tones come from the long ageing in French oak barrels. This wine has a sophisticated mouth-feel and remarkable elegance.
