Renacer launches the 2019 vintage of its icon wines.

The winery's winemaker Fernando Sota, gave the final yes to the 2019 vintage of these wines and it is ready to reach all the wine shops in the country.

The two orange R labels are Malbec and Cabernet Franc, varieties in which the winery considers itself a "specialist" in its production and with which it has been working since its beginnings in 2003.

On the one hand, Malbec, whose grapes come from three micro-regions of the Uco Valley; Paraje Altamira, located at 1100 m.a.s.l. and where the main characteristic of the soil is limestone. Gualtallary at 1000 m.a.s.l. with alluvial and calcareous soils and El Cepillo, at an altitude of 1200 m.a.s.l. with 100% stony soils. In Luján de Cuyo, the micro-region that provides grapes for this wine is Perdriel, where the winery is located at an altitude of 900 m.a.s.l. with loamy soils.

The Cabernet Franc, one of the first icon wines of this variety in Mendoza, is made from grapes from Vista Flores, in the Uco Valley, at 1100 m.a.s.l. with a loamy soil, and from Luján de Cuyo, from Renacer's own estate in Perdriel.

Fernando Sota tells us that "each grape is fermented separately in stainless steel tanks depending on its harvest point and with indigenous yeasts" and then added that the time in barrel for both varieties is 24 months in first and second use French oak. Once this time is completed, the final blend is aged for another 6 months in stainless steel tanks and another 6 months in bottle.

This wine is of limited production, as the best grapes are selected from each geographical point, so the number of bottles of Malbec 2019 is 12,000 and Cabernet Franc 2019 is 7,000.

James Suckling recently awarded these two wines 92 points each, and of the Malbec he highlighted its blackberry and licorice aromas, as well as its great body and clear tannins. Of the Cabernet Franc, he highlighted its excellent balance. On the other hand, the prestigious British critic Tim Atkin gave another 92 points to the Malbec.
