Decero Malbec

Agrelo

Most of the Remolinos vineyard consists of silty clay over sandy gravels.  The yields for the plots that go into the Decero Malbec are around 3.5-4 tons an acres.  Clusters are thinned to 1-2 clusters per shoot, are hand-picked, and then sorted twice.  After maceration and a cold soak, the various malbec lots were fermented at different temperatures depending on their characteristics; slightly lower temperatures for the more aromatic parcels, and higher temperatures for parcels with more concentration.  The wine was then gently basket pressed before going into French oak (around a third new) for malolactic fermentation and 16 months maturation.
