Bodega Renacer Punto Final Cabernet Sauvignon Organico
WHY WE LOVE IT
- The grapes come from 2 blocks of the “Renacer” estate in Perdriel “located in Perdriel – Luján de Cuyo (950 m.a.s.l. – silt loam soils).
- This wine has a young profile and is aged without contact with oak.
Varietal Composition: 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc.
Elaboration: With yields of less than 8 tons per hectare. The harvest is hand-picked in 17 kg. at the beginning of April. There is a double manual selection of clusters and berries. The maturation is cold for 3 days at 8° C and the alcoholic fermentation is carried out with selected indigenous yeasts for 10 days in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures between 25° and 27° C. The malolactic fermentation is done in stainless steel tanks.
Tasting Notes: Intense ruby red color with violet and black highlights. Aromas of ripe cherries, currants and ripe plums complemented by roasted bell pepper and sweet spices (paprika, pepper). Noticeable fresh plum and cherry flavors. Sweet entry with ripe tannins, balanced with good acidity; elegant, persistent on the palate and long finish.
Bodega Renacer was founded by Patricio Reich, who has been in the wine industry since the late 1980s. He started his career as a partner and managing director of Viña San Pedro in Chile. His passion for wine grew over the years, and it was then that as a family – together with his children – they decided to embark on a new project aimed at producing premium wines.
Built in 2004 in Perdriel, Luján de Cuyo, at the foot of the Andes Mountains, the winery is a tower with Tuscan- inspired walls, pergolas and Italian-style gardens to honor their family roots and create a warm and welcoming space for all who visit.
The Renacer vineyards are located in Perdriel, a unique area of Mendoza – Argentina, at the foot of the Andes Mountains and on the south margin of the Mendoza River. In this area Malbec and Cabernets find their best expression due to the outstanding characteristics of climate, altitude, soil and water.
30 hectares of estate vineyards, some of them more than seventy years old, planted with Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc with a production of less than 8 tons per hectare. In order to take advantage of the expressions of the different terroirs of Mendoza, Renacer works long term relationships with the best local producers in the micro-regions of Valle de Uco and Luján de Cuyo.
