Pinot Noir 100%

Rio Negro in Patagonia has a unique soil structure. The vineyard is on a sloping river bank and contains random patches of red soil. These areas are very low in organic content and very high in iron. The vines growing in these red soil areas produce low yields of grapes, but the fruit they do produce has very concentrated and distinct flavours and aromas. This wine is made only with grapes from vines growing in the red soil.

After gentle destemming, the grapes have a 2 day cold maceration then whole berries are fermented with natural yeasts whilst the temperature is maintained below 22° C. Over the first 7 days of the 12 day fermentation period, the cap is repeatedly punched down to enhance extraction. 

The wine is aged for 12 months in used 225 Litre French Oak barrels.

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.
