Primus Malbec shows raspberry, plum and blueberry flavors with hints of violet, black pepper and tobacco. This is a full-bodied wine with well-integrated oak and a lengthy finish.
Primus Malbec represents the unique character of high-altitude, old-vines from Mendoza and comes primarily from vineyards in one of Mendoza’s oldest regions. The grapes are hand harvested, cooled and double sorted. Whole berry fermentations occur in temperature controlled concrete and stainless steel tanks. The wines age for 14 months in French oak.
Malbec is the most widely planted red grape variety in Argentina with cuttings brought to the country in the 1800s by the French. Argentine Malbec is characterized by its deep color and intense fruity flavors with a soft velvety texture.
|Opening in 1998, Veramonte is a striking, modern facility designed by one of Chile’s leading architects, Jorge Swinburn. It houses the latest technology in gravity-based fermentors, ultra-modern stainless steel tanks and high efficiency bottling lines. Built for small-lot wine production, the facility ensures individual vineyard blocks can be fermented and aged separately prior to final blending – allowing winemaking to create authentic, vineyard expressive wines.
Veramonte was founded as a vineyard-based winery whose mission is to produce high quality wines that accurately, authentically express varietal characteristics via Chile’s unique terroirs -- the combined environment of soil, topography, climate and people. Our commitment to nurturing the ties of every wine to its soil or ”sense of place” reflects a dedication to produce terroir expressive wines.
