Algodon Grand Cuvee 2012
This blend is the union of our estate's oldest vineyards. We carefully select the year's best barrels of Malbec, Bonarda, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. The result is a wine of fruity, spicy and toasted character with elegance and complexity. Each varietal is individually elaborated under the microvinification technique, and after 12 months of aging our winemakers perform the assemblage, which then continues aging in French oak for an additional 12 months. It is a blend that not only expresses the quality of our old vines, but also their great potential. Production limited to 2,000 bottles (release date: October 26, 2015).
Our Grand Cuvee wine is elegant and complex. With notes of ripe red fruit, and toasted spice. Aging in French oak gives aromas of chocolate, cinnamon and vanilla resulting in the wine’s elegant aromas. On the palate, this wine is structured and mature with silky tannins. Fruit and spice persist on the palate, with a finish of fruit and toast. This wine has a cellaring potential of 10 years.
