Wine maker notes
Winemaker Notes The fruit is hand picked followed by crushing, coolingof crushed grapes, 12 hour cold maceration (to pull the color of the skins) and pressing. Fermentation begins by inoculating with selected yeasts. Half way through the fermentation process, the wine is centrifuged (spun) to halt fermentation, creating a slightly sweet, semi-sparkling wine.

Technical notes
(50% Malbec/50% Merlot). The hand-picked grapes were sourced from the Valentin Bianchi Estate vineyards. The grapes are crushed and cold maceration ensues, with static draining and pneumatic pressing. Fermentation by inoculating with selected yeasts half-way through fermentation, the wine is centrifuged (spun) to halt fermentation.

Food pairing
Serving Hints This wine should be well-chilled as an aperitif or dessert. Also makes a unique American-style sangria.

Producer
In 1928, Italian immigrant Valentin Bianchi bought a vineyard and small winery called El Chiche in Mendoza, Argentina. When Valentin's sons joined the company in the early 1950s, they renamed the company Valentin Bianchi. Today his grandsons, Valentin Eduardo, Ricardo Stradella and Alejandro Ruben manage the estate. The Valentin Bianchi vineyards Asti, Las Paredes and Dona Elsa comprise over 716 acres and are located in San Rafael region, an area thought to have the best soil in Mendoza. The vineyards are planted with Italian, Californian and French rootstock. Francisco Martinez is the winemaker for all Valentin Bianchi labels, and has been with the winery since 1979. In 1996, winemaker Robert Pepi, of Napa, California was hired as a consultant to introduce contemporary techniques while maintaining the wines' traditional Argentine character.
