SYNTHESIS SOPHENIA, encompasses the best wines from the estate at Tupungato. Iconic wines of great concentration and elegant flavours. The Blend: blend of of Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Malbec and Sauvignon Blanc: single vineyards varietals. Considered one of the best Argentine cult wines.
By the Andes, at an altitude 4000 feet. Soils of alluvial origin, loose and highly permeable structure. Special handling of pruning, irrigation and canopy to obtain low yields and grapes of the highest quality.
Harvest exclusively by hand at the beginning of April. Grape cluster selection (sorting table) 100% of the wine aged in new French oak barrels for 12 months.
Deep and intense ruby red colour with violet dyes. Intense, great aromatic expressions. Concentrated floral notes- violets, roses- and black pepper, combined with ripe red fruits like plum and blackberry. Its’ ageing in French oak confers elegant flavours of smoke and tobacco, melted with chocolate notes. In the mouth it starts sweet and generous, giving way to a complete and concentrated palate with a long fruity elegant finish.
"Malbec at its most elegant! Deep, brooding, earthy notes mingled with
wild mountain herbs, grass and juicy, intense, spicy dark cherries. Incredibly pure with perfect oak and a very long, fresh finish.
