The Oddbins Take

Sometimes we wish we had more than words with which to convey our wines to you. If we could, we’d take you into a saddlery, clad you in the softest purple velvet and then crush some freshly-picked red cherries, blackberries in a pestle and mortar, add a twist of schezuan pepper and present it to you, saying “this. This is what you are buying if you buy this wine.” We have to sadly accept the reality that we can’t do that, but we hope you get the picture.

Domingo Hermanos is a family enterprise unique on the area of Cafayate, Salta, Argentina, in the sense that its owners are natives and continue to make Cafayate their home. The company originated around 1960 when Palo and his brother Martin acquired a piece of land in Cafayate (1,700 metres high) and Yacochuya (2,000 m high). Today the business has grown and Domingo Hermanos owns 90 hectares of fine grape vineyards in this prime location, cultivating mainly Torrontés, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. In 2000, Jorge Martinez came on board with the vision of producing a range of premium wines that reflect the characteristics of their high altitude vineyards. The family believed in the project and invested in the plantation of vineyards at Quebrada de las Flechas, a spectacular valley at 2,300 metres which can only be accessed through the dry path of a river. Today, their ranges Finca de Domingo & Domingo Hermanos (from Cafayate) are highly regarded around the world as one of the most terroir oriented wines in the region.

The grapes were manually harvested in small trays and were crushing and de-stemmed. Fermentation took place for 15 days, in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures between 25°C and 27°C, with natural yeasts and malolactic fermentation. Maceration was then allowed to occur for three to four weeks. 30% of the wine was aged for six months in new French oak.

The wine is deep red colour, with some purple shades, characteristic of high-altitude Malbecs. It has complex aromas of red, ripe fruit, excellent structure and a very complex palate with ripe tannins, a velvety texture and a long finish.
