Argentina may be best known for big, bolshy malbecs, but that's not all they do. This Shiraz is big and bold enough to stand up for itself against any Malbec, or the grilled red meats it would normally be paired with. Dense with dark fruit, rich with spice and just a hint of pepper, this just goes to show that when it comes to reds, Argentina's no one trick pony.
Desert like environmental factors and sandy soils challenge the vines that produce the grapes for this wine. As such the quality and intensity of the fruit that emerges is striking.
Grapes were harvested by hand in the 3rd week of March and macerated for 24 days under temperature controlled conditions. After malolactic fermentation, the wine was then racked into French and American oak barrels for six months.
