Vine age: From 15-60 years old. Vineyards selected for Carrascal Cabernet Sauvignon are situated in Lujan de Cuyo and Maipu, within the subregions of Perdriel, Ugarteche, Agrelo, Lunlunta.
2019 was characterized by a very dry cycle with precipitations reaching 50% less than average registrations, leading to smaller berries and lower yields due to the hydric stress. Within the traditional regions of Lujan de Cuyo, cooler temperatures led to fresh acidity levels, while small berries help concentrate dark fruit and tobacco notes, and the lack of rain allowed for excellent sanitary conditions.
18 months in French oak casks of 2.200 – 6.000L, between October 2019 and April 2021.
All grapes were harvested manually and selected at the vineyard itself, transported in small 20kg cases to the winery and immediately crushed.
