Grapes are grown in the Uco Valley in south west Mendoza at altitudes of 900 - 1,500 meters. The high altitude, desert conditions are ideally suited to Malbec, with the cool nights ensuring the fresh fruit flavours and acidity are preserved, whilst also allowing the development of floral notes.
The grapes undergo a 28 day maceration period, and cool fermentation, to preserve the fruit flavours. The wine is aged for 9 months in 225 Litre French Oak barrels, 10% of which are new.
Manos Negras is a project of Alejandro Sejanovich, one of Argentina's star viticulturists. He pioneered high altitude vineyards at Bodega Catena Zapata, and is a renowned expert on Malbec clones. He describes Manos Negras as a latitude project: Torrontes is grown in northern Salta; Pinot Noir in the most southern region of Neuquen in Patagonia. He also has plantings of 50 year old Malbec vines in the renowned Altamira region of the Uco Valley.
