Notes about product
The Adrianna vineyard is located at almost 5,000’ ft elevation in the Gualtallary sub-district of the Tupungato region, Mendoza. The rocky, gravely soil prevents deep root growth and allows for ideal drainage conditions. The cool nights allow for very slow ripening, optimal acid retention and low yields.
Grapes were cold settled for 12 hours in stainless steel tanks at 6º C., followed by fermentation in French oak barrels for 45 - 95 days at 16°C. Partial malolactic fermentation. Aged for 12-16 months in 2nd, 3d and 4th use French oak barrels. Unfined and unfiltered.
