Harvested by hand, this bivarietal wine is elaborated after a 72-hour-maceration before fermentation to enhance its primary aromas. Afterwards, a co-fermentation of Cabernet Franc and Malbec is carried out for 30 days in concrete vats to attain a more stable colour intensity and to improve the tannin-anthocyanin relation. Co-Fermentation helps to harmonize the spicy, aromatic textures of the Cabernet Franc, alongside the fruitiness of the Malbec.

"The 2013 Cabernet Franc Malbec is a clear step up over the 2012 in terms of freshness and precision. The Malbec comes from an old vineyard and the Cabernet Franc is sourced from recent planting at 1,700 meters altitude (some 100 kilometres north of Mendoza City) on the border with Mendoza, but in the San Juan province. The soils there are very rich in chalk and slate. Even though it was a cooler vintage, the grapes seem to have achieved better ripeness. The nose shows very floral aromas and something balsamic without being herbal. The palate is vibrant with the combination of buttery tannins and great, almost citric acidity that makes you salivate. The wine finishes very long and persistent." Luis Guitérrez, Wine Advocate Edition #220, August 2015.
