The Felino Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from Mendoza vineyards in Luján de Cuyo and Maipú between 2,637 and 3,513 feet elevation. Semi-desert climate. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.
The period 2013/14 presented complex weather conditions since the beginning of the season. Spring began with very low temperatures and snowfalls in the plains. Late frost affected
the yield of varieties like chardonnay and malbec. A heatwave in January and rains in February were highlighted as climate
anomalies; in both cases they were above average.
The months of February, March and April had a cool climate, with record temperature below the historical average, which allowed a homogeneous maturity of oenological parameters.
Fermented with selected and native yeasts in 8 and 18 ton, closed-top stainless steel tanks.
2-3 day cold soak; 16 days total maceration.
Native malolactic fermentation, 4 months to completion.
Bottled June 2015, unfined.
