Tasting Note

As good as or even better than the superb 2007 & 2009 vintage. Black cherry fruit on the nose, with cocoa powder, currant leaf and malt extract. Lovely texture on the palate: ripe, unashamedly New World fruit married to crisp acidity and defined but gentle tannin. Rich and rounded, yet with beautiful freshness and sense of minerality.

Take your time to sip it, because it gets even better: progressively more silky, with notes of liquorice and violets.

Winemaking

Vines 50 years old, on average, growing in deep and stony soil. Hand-harvested, careful selection of the best bunches. Destemmed, crushed and both fermented and maceration in stainless steel tanks for 19 days at 23-25ºC. Natural malolactic fermentation. 20 months ageing in new French oak barrels.

Press

  • Deep and lush up front, this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Cab Franc offers highly appealing aromas of blackberry and toast. Dense, layered and hefty on the palate, this extracted but well-balanced blend piles on blueberry, black plum, cassis and toast flavours. On the finish, darker notes of espresso and bitter chocolate take over. Drink now through 2018.

    • Wine Enthusiast Magazine
  • Unanime, from the Latin ‘unanimis’ refers to a group of people who share the same opinions or views, who are in complete harmony or accord. This simple word summarises the spirit of this special project: when we were finishing the 2005 harvest, both our winemakers and agronomists agreed that the time was ripe to start crafting a superior red blend, a ‘Gran Vino Tinto.’ We wanted to showcase the great wines Argentina can offer when exceptional climate and passionate people harmoniously come together as one. This blend is made of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Malbec and 15% Cabernet Franc. All the grapes were grown in selected old vineyards from the Uco Valley, in Mendoza. Deep cherry-red in colour, UNANIME stands out for the intensity of its fruit flavours and its aromatic complexity. Its long 20-month ageing in French oak confers it elegant aromas of tobacco and chocolate, along with a touch of black pepper and some fleshy notes. This wine will continue to age nicely for years to come.
