Rogue Vine Super Itata Tinto 2016 (750ml)

Rogue Vine Super Itata Tinto 2016 (750ml)

A blend of 33% Carignan, 33% Malbec, and 33% Syrah, all from old vines (planted between 1920-1960) grown in granitic soils. Aged in neutral oak for 2 years, then in bottle for another 6 months.

The wine is rich in color with notes of blue and black fruits, and white pepper. The palate is well balanced with ripe tannins, a bright mid-palate, and smooth and velvety finish.

Rogue Vine is a project led by Leo Erazo, who is also the winemaker for Altos Las Hormigas in Mendoza, Argentina along with his partner Justin Decker. They make wines from two different subregions of the Itata Valley. All the vineyards are composed of hillside, dry-farmed bush-vines that are a minimum of 60 years old, some older than 300. The soils are primarily composed of granite with a mix of clay and quartz. The winemaking is simple and employs native yeast, old barrels, no corrections, and minimal sulfur prior to bottling. Itata Valley’s viticulture is primarily practiced through horse plowing and hand farming.

Rogue Vine’s ethos is to promote the rich history of this long neglected and local farming community.
