Producer Profile

Alejandro Sejanovich is arguably Argentina’s most knowledgeable viticulturist, working as vineyard director for Bodega Catena Zapata for 16 years, he pioneered high altitude vineyard planting and conducted ground breaking research on Mendoza Malbec clones. Manos Negras focuses on latitude winemaking, planting Torrontes in the northern stretches of Cadayate in Salta, Pinot Noir in the southern-most region of Neuquen in Patagonia and cultivates 50 year old Malbec vines in the prized Altamira appellation in the Uco Valley.

Viticulture

Sourced from the Altmira district of the San Carlos county, located in the southern Uco Valley at an elevation of approximately 1200 meters. Altamira has Mendoza’s most unique soil profile, with a patchwork of sandy, silty and stony soils all present in the same vineyard. The stony soils contain a high content of surface stones – round rocks that are literally painted white with calcium carbonate.

Winemaking

Artesano Malbec is made with fruit cultivated in high altitude vineyards and the foot of the majestic Andes. At these extreme elevations, Malbec produces a rich bold wine, full of New World power and concentration. The addition of a dash of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, increases the intense floral aromas and refined Old World elegance, as well as some structure and earthy notes to the final wine

Tasting Note

The inclusion of a small percentage of Cabernet Franc intensifies the floral layer of the Malbec creating natural elegance that reminds us of an old world wine.

Food Matching

Incredibly versatile, try this with mature cheddar, beef, venison as well as spice flavours such as fennel and cumin.
