Grape type : 100% Malbec
TASTING NOTES :
Shiny cherry-red color. Aromas of overripe fruits like prunes and morello cherries. Unctuous and complex on the palate, with notes of dried plums and quince. Its great sugar/acidity balance gives it a unique personality. Very long finish. Serving suggestions: chocolate desserts, red fruit tarts and quince paste.

Grapes are frozen for several days until reaching temperatures below -8ºC (18º F), at which temperature the water begins to crystallize into ice crystals. Pressing then occurs and a unique must or juice is obtained.
