Description

Description:

This complex, yet well-balanced, wine presents an elegant style with hints of ripe plums and raspberry fruit. Gentle tannins and

slightly toasted oak, spice and chocolate on the palate move to a long, lingering, focused finish.

Winemaker’s Notes:

100% ESTATE GROWN FRUIT

Grapes are harvested from the Barrancas Vineyard in the Maipú, region of Mendoza. Maceration is conducted over two days at 46.4° F. The wine is seeded with selected yeasts and ferments at

77- 82.4° F for 10 days. To finish this process, after malolactic fermentation, 100% of the wine is aged in American oak for eight months. It remains in bottle four months prior to release date.

Serving Hints:

Pascual Toso Barrancas is an ideal match for red meats, lamb, pasta and fine cheeses.
