Grapes enjoy a manual double selection of clusters and berries. After a gentle destemming, the whole berry fruit undergoes 6 –8 days of cold maceration at 8° C. Fermentation is conducted with free run juice using natural yeasts. Fermentation temperatures are kept low in order to ensure a soft gentle extraction. The wine undergoes spontaneous malolactic fermentation in barrel and is naturally clarified through several rankings.
Aging: 12 months in French oak barrels.
„The 2013 Casarena Reservado Sinergy Blend is a blend of Malbec with 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot from the estate vineyards (they have around 280 hectares of vineyards). The nose is quite ripe, with aromas of plums and a touch of banana. The palate feels fresher and has fine tannins and good acidity that shows better than the nose.” Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
