More info

As the name alludes, the Trinità is a precise three-grape blend. Trinità's Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes are grown on 30 to 70 year old vines, located in the prestigious Luján de Cuyo DOC, Agrelo and the Uco Valley. Cultivated with arid clean air, crystal clear water, nutrient rich soil and following a meticulous, low volume process, the vines are carefully managed to produce low yields of concentrated fruit.

Each variety was harvested by hand in cases of 18 kilograms. The grapes were carefully selected before being destemmed. A proportion of the grapes were fermented in small tanks of 5,000 litres; a proportion in egg shaped concrete tanks and the final proportion in barrels. Selected yeasts were added. Fermentation temperatures were controlled between 25°C and 28°C. Manual punch-downs took place to break the cap of solids, at the beginning of the fermentation this took place four times per day, reducing to twice per day. The free-run juice was separated form the pressed juice. Malolactic conversion was completed in barrels. The wines were matured in French and American oak barrels for 13 months. The final blend was made prior to bottling.
