"Each varietal was fermented separately, with Malbec following the method of carbonic maceration. After fermentation the concentrated must was separated at a controlled temperature of 64 °F, obtaining high fruit concentration. The Syrah fermented by the traditional method in concrete vats, the fermentation process conducted with indigenous yeasts at 75 °F for 28 days, obtaining a wine with aromas of spices like cinnamon. After the alcoholic fermentation the blend was made, 60% Malbec and 40 % Syrah, which then underwent malolactic fermentation. 60% of the wine was raised 8 months in French oak barrels of 1,000 L." —winemaker
"The 2013 Malbec - Syrah feels fresh, lively and characterful with a combination of red and black fruit, minerals, crushed rocks, some wild herbs and spices. There is good tension, a fine texture and subdued minerality in the finish. I think the blend of Malbec with Syrah can work without the grapes overpowering each other. This is a good example. 3,500 bottles." —Luis Gutierrez, The Wine Advocate
