Blend and Origin
An atypical vintage was marked by freezing conditions in spring, followed by a scorching summer that saw high temperatures from day to nightfall. Eventually cooler temperatures arrived during the ripening period, allowing the grapes – a blend of malbec (62%) and cabernet sauvignon (38%) – to reach maturity with optimum levels of ripeness.
