Atamisque Serbal Assemblage, Tupungato, Mendoza

Atamisque Serbal Assemblage, Tupungato, Mendoza

A blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec from vineyards in the Tupungato region of Mendoza over 1,300 metres above sea level. The Merlot vines are the oldest, averaging around 30 years, whilst the Cabernet Franc and Malbec are the youngest being around ten years old. Hand-harvested grapes undergo both a pre-fermentation cold maceration and post-fermentation maceration, about 16 days in total, to extract the maximum amount of colour and flavour from the grape skins. Unoaked, the wine undergoes a period of ageing in stainless steel tanks to integrate the wine's flavours prior to bottling. Shows red fruit and a note of bell pepper on a well-structured, juicy palate.
