Vintage Notes
2001

The vintage 2001 is of good quality was characterized by dry weather and average temperatures during budburst with no frosts. There were no frosts, not even in the coolest areas of Valle de Uco, such as Tupungato and, therefore, flowering was very consistent with uniform buds.   In the vineyards in which canopy tasks were carried out to improve ventilation and reduce production, especially in those cases in which irrigation was carefully managed (the Malbec areas of Vistalba Terrace was only irrigated twice during the summer) great quality was achieved with wines featuring good color, body and concentration.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Full and luxuriously rich and fleshy, intense notes of ripe cherries and figs are elevated by nuances of caramel and almond. Sweet spice and blond tobacco notes add to its slightly wild edge. Fresh and vibrant, it stands out for the complexity of its vivacious notes and silky texture. Pure elegance.

“Very polished, with suave toast and spice notes weaving through supple blackberry, black currant and plum fruit. The long, seamless finish shows real depth. Impressive for this cooler vintage.” “Very polished, with suave toast and spice notes weaving through supple blackberry, black currant and plum fruit. The long, seamless finish shows real depth.
