Twenty rows of a single vineyard were selected to produce this wine. Special vineyard practices were followed from pruning to harvest, to ensure optimal expression in this Malbec. Green harvesting was done earlier than previous vintages to ensure a more natural balanced Malbec. Gentle extraction by way of pump-overs during fermentation. Special care was taken to not over-extract the skins. Post-fermentation skin contact was done for 14 days before gentle pressing. Malolactic fermentation was completed in barrels. The wine was then matured for 18 months in French oak barrels.
