40% of the wine spends 3 months in 225ly third use oak barrels followed by 2 months of bottle aging.
The winery was founded in 1910 by Polish immigrant Don Sami Flichman. He purchased property in Barrancas (southern Maipu) and planted vines in rocky, well-drained plots situated along the Mendoza river. It was Sami’s son Isaac who first began to make fine wine at the estate, including Caballero de la Cepa, one of the first high-quality wines that garnered international awareness for premium Argentinian wines. Sogrape Vinhos purchased Finca Flichman in 1998, and invested heavily in restoring the vineyards and modernising the winery. The original Barrancas vineyard remains among their 400 hectares of vines, which also includes the higher altitude Tupungato vineyard. Today the wines are made by
Rogelio Rabino, who works closely with consultant and renowned winemaker Alberto Antonini.
This is a blend of Malbec from vineyards in Tupungato, Uco Valley. It is a deep ruby, with intensely fruity aromas, where the aging in oak barrels is well integrated, preserving the freshness and acidity provided by the high altitude viticulture. With a modern and juicy profile, it is an outstanding wine.
