Inky, with a lovely nose of dark fruits and bramble. Concentrated dark fruits, floral notes and spice are balanced by the ripe, chunky tannins. A proper steak wine alternative to Malbec.
100% Petit Verdot. Aged for 12 months in new and one year old French and American medium toasted oak barrels.
In the 1990’s Mendoza-born Manuel Mas returned to his birthplace and established Finca La Anita, named after his mother. This was one of the pioneering wineries in Argentina to focus on producing premium quality wines at a time when most of the industry was about volume. Finca La Anita is located in the Alto Agrelo region South of Mendoza renowned for its specific agroecological conditions including rich alluvial and clay soils and large thermal amplitude. The average altitude is around 1,000 metres abs and irrigation sources are snowmelt from the nearby Andes mountains and underground wells.
The Estate has 72 hectares planted with Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Petit Verdot, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. The vines are an average of 30 years old and are planted on original rootstock (!).
