Renacer Winery Launches the New Vintage of its Icon Wines: Malbec and Cabernet Franc.

Renacer, along with its winemaking team, announces the release of the new 2020 vintage of its iconic wines to the market.

Under the guidance of winemaker Fernando Sota, the 2020 harvest stands out for the elegance and complexity of both the Malbec and Cabernet Franc. The objective of this line has always been to create exceptional wines that are representative of the finest microregions in Mendoza and our estate in Perdriel. This is achieved by using exceptional quality grapes and employing meticulous winemaking throughout each stage of the process.

Renacer Malbec can be described under the concept of "three zones - three winemaking methods," with grapes sourced from Perdriel in Luján de Cuyo, and Gualtallary and Paraje Altamira in the Uco Valley. Each microregion underwent a distinct winemaking process, involving submerged cap fermentation and post-fermentation maceration, cold pre-fermentation maceration, and délestage, respectively. Following the final blend, the wine is aged in French oak barrels for 24 months.

In the case of Renacer Cabernet Franc, Fernando explains it as "two zones with two different harvest points." Grapes from our own estate in Perdriel were harvested in early April to capture the freshness of the region, while those from El Cepillo in the Uco Valley were picked at the end of February to showcase the best expression of the varietal. This wine also undergoes 24 months of barrel aging, followed by 6 months in the bottle.

These wines have garnered recognition from esteemed critics, with both receiving 91 points from Tim Atkin and James Suckling. Additionally, Renacer Cabernet Franc achieved 95 points in the Decanter competition, solidifying its position as one of the finest Cabernet Francs in the country.
