Description

Founded in 1998, Don Cristobal’s four vineyards are located around Mendoza City; the winery is just 39km to the south of the city. The winery itself is very high tech with modern temperature control facilities, built in 2008 and is located in the El Remanso vineyard at Ugarteche, just off National Route 40. The cellar has a capacity of 2,200,000 litres including epoxy-coated concrete tanks, stainless steel tanks and French and American oak barrels. Hand harvested, the wine undergoes traditional, spontaneous, temperature controlled fermentation. It sees no oak and is not fined.

The perfect combination of ripe red fruits and spices, heightened by the subtle use of French oak barrels. An intense bright red colour with purple tones. The aromas are elegant and soft of spiced and fruity notes. The palate is rich and beefy, balanced with soft tannins giving beautiful length. 

Food matches: Perfect with rich beef and venison dishes.
