We source the grapes for Afincado (Spanish for “to be settled and well established in a specific place”), our premier varietal wines, from two of the most treasured plots of land in Mendoza: “Las Compuertas” and “Los Aromos” Vineyards. Produced in very limited quantities and only released in exceptional years, these next generation luxury wines from Argentina are rooted in a truly local style: full-bodied power , high intensity and structure, with ripe, rich and persistent aromatic fruit.
Colour: Profound violet, with magenta shades that “paint the glass”.
Nose: A riveting introduction of freshly crushed cherries and plums, evolves elegantly into a complex combination of plums, wild flowers, incense and spices.
Palate: A voluptuous frame of newly pressed jam preserves exposes a meaty texture and polished, voluminous tannins, building to a fruit-packed crescendo laced with violet flowers, cocoa seed and coffee beans. A spectacular example of the 1929 Las Compuertas Vineyard´s characteristic fruit expression which will gracefully age for 15 years.
Alcohol percentage: 14%
