The grapes for this wine come from vineyards in General Roca, Alto Valle de Río Negro, Patagonia. The grapes are harvested manually in 20kg cans during the first week of April. They undergo cold pre-fermentation maceration for 48 hours, alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperature in cement vessels of 9,000 liters capacity for a period of 12 days with periodic pump-overs and de-staging. After the malolactic fermentation, the wine is aged and preserved until bottling. Aging period in the bottle is for 3 months.
The wine is an intense red with violet tints and aromas of small red fruits. From the Patagonian mountain range, this wine has notes of cassis, raspberry, plum and mint. It is well-balanced, with soft tannins, velvety and very fruity.
