Tasting Notes: Blackberry, cassis and dried fruit aromas with a velvety texture combined with a firm structure and a long ripe finish.

Producer Details: Michel Torino's vineyards in Salta, Cafayate, are among the highest in the world; 1,700m above sea level, basking in splendid isolation surrounded by desert and breathtaking mountain scenery. The vines get 350 days of sunshine, but at this altitude there is a consistent breeze to cool things down. This sunny but cool climate, combined with the rocky and sandy soil is an ideal environment for growing grapes. From the 2006 vintage, their vineyards have been certified as totally organic, but Michel Torino chooses only to bottle four wines as organic. Exceptional wines from a unique part of the world.

In The Vineyard: Deep, poor, rocky soils. Grapes are handpicked from vines identified for producing grapes of great intensity
and concentration.

In The Winery: The grapes go through pre-fermentation maceration at cold temperatures to extract the maximum colour and fruit while softening the tannins. Fermentation is in stainless steel tanks followed by part ageing (30%) in both american and french oak for 6 months to add complexity.
