Description

Coming from a 17ha vineyard, located next to the coast, whether the river Plate estuary meets the Atlantic Ocean. Soils consist of calcareous white and brown clays. Using no insecticide and dry no-till farming, the family practices sustainable farming. Minimal intervention viticulture. Hand harvested. This unique wine combines two different techniques for dessert wines, barolo chinato and marsala.

Tasting note

Honey like texture. Aromas of winter flowers, madagascan vanilla bean, white cacao souffle, dark cherries. Savory and lonesome finish.

Decanter Magazine (decanter.com):

Intriguing and intense nose with a combination of ultra-sweet burnt caramel, dried prune and spirits in evidence. Deep colour in the glass, reminiscent of an aged vintage port or Banyuls. Chocolate and orange flavours dominate the palate. Incredibly sweet, dominating any remaining acidity - it's a lush mouthful but there's no Tannat typicity lurking anywhere. For drinking in very small doses over many years. (Blind tasted by Oz Clarke,Christelle Guibert,Andy Howard MW) Points: 88. Date Tasted: 02/10/2017
