TN : Finca Sophenia Reserve Malbec 2011, Tupungato, Mendoza, Uco Valley, Argentina

The must underwent a twelve day cold maceration followed by fermentation and final skin maceration for ten days in stainless steel tanks at a temperature between 26 and 28 degrees. The wine spent one year in a combination of French and American oak. The name Finca Sophenia is a combination of both of the owner's daughters' names Sophia and Eugenia.
