SWINTO is “Crow” in the language of the Huarpe Indians, the first inhabitants of the Mendoza river valley. Meticulous selection of the best clusters capture the greatest expression of the Malbec grape.
TASTING NOTES: A brilliant deep garnet colour. Complex, darkly fruity and earthy on the nose, with a luscious palate of ripe red stone fruits and jams accented with spicy, toasty notes. Generously flavourful, dense and unfiltered, SWINTO achieves an outstanding balance of Malbec’s signature robust character and silky elegance.
AGEING: Enhanced by malolatic fermentation in new French Oak Barrels and ageing in the same barrels for 18 months with an additional year in the bottle.
