TEMPUS ALBA MERLOT
Our Children, Our Wines. The offspring of those tireless, self-sacrificing and passionate lives are here today; and there is also the mature wine that, with the pride of having known excellence, dreams of returning to the land of our elders to bear witness to what the New World is capable of producing when working with passion and love for the land. We create our wines like someone who prepares a child for life: honest, noble, complex, unique. The grapes that give them origin come from our vineyards and were harvested at dawn, taking from it all their energy and sense of hope.
The result of the rigorous control of the fermentation process, with a maceration of 28 days, this Merlot is born, without any contribution of wood in order to preserve the power of its fruit. Our winemaker highlights its intense aroma of red fruit jams and its complexity. In the mouth it is harmonious, concentrated, standing out its sweet and ripe tannins, with a finish reminiscent of plums and cassis. The grapes that gave rise to this varietal come from their own vineyards in Luján de Cuyo.
