Natural / Low Intervention Wine sourced from High Altitude Vineyards. Andes Plateau practices extreme viticulture in the Andes Mountains Altitude determines, more than anything else, the identity of our wines. High altitude means cool temperatures and slower grape´s ripening. There is no spring frost above 800 mts. No cultivated yeast No acidification No manipulated wine. We don’t add any chemical product except a small dose of sulfurous before bottling. 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Syrah, 2% Carignan HARVESTS AND VINIFICATION: The grapes are tasted and selected carefully. An early harvest allows the wines to achieve freshness and acidity. The process is made by hand, using 12 kilos boxes. We use pure native yeasts. The Cabernet Sauvignon is fermented in stainless steel tanks, while the Syrah and the Carignan are fermented in open tanks to facilitate “Pigeage” (grinded with feet). This process is an essential part of our wine mixture. We limit to the minimum the pump-over process and we taste daily our wines until the desired results. AGING AND STORAGE: The wines are aged for 10 months in 3rd and 4th use oak barrels. Additionally we use the 20% of a 2nd hand untoasted french oak foudre. Afterward, the wine is storage for a minimum of 3 months to then be released to the market. TASTING NOTES: Elegant wine with red fruits, spices and black pepper notes. In the palate it shows great tannin structure and freshness that makes it vibrant and easy to drink. Thanks its acidity, it becomes a versatile wine that can be combined with a wide variety of flavors and foods.
