VINA COBOS BRAMARE SINGLE VINEYARD MALBEC REBON ESTATE VALLE DE UCO

In 1989, Paul Hobbs visited Mendoza for the first time. Driving over the Andes from Chile, he fell in love with the place, the people, but also with the potential to make great wine. He began experimenting with wild fermented Chardonnay and then with the variety that would become Argentina's calling card - Malbec. His first 10 barrel vintage of Malbec persuaded the American press of the potential of this grape. Paul established his winery, Vina Cobos, in 1999 and 20 years later, Paul continues to make wines that are authentic expressions of the terroir from which they come. In an exploration of the different terroirs across Mendoza Paul looks for the most distinguished regions in Luján de Cuyo and Valle de Uco to produce wines that uniquely express their origins. The winery’s elegant and balanced wines are a result of meticulous vineyard farming and utmost respect for terroir.

Situated on as southeast exposing slope in a semi-desert climate at the foot of the Andes Mountains is the Rebon Estate at around 3,3300 feet. The soils in the specific block are sandy, with a marked slope and very well-drained. Furrow irrigation

Primary fermentation performed with selected yeasts in an 8-ton closed-top stainless steel tank with maceration lasting a total of 29 days, of which 4 days were cold-soak. Secondary fermentation with native yeast for 3 months then ageing for 17 to 18 months in French oak barrels, 60 to 65%new. Unfined and unfiltered.

Ruby red hue with pleasant aromas of ripe red fruit and a fresh touch of wild herbs and violets. The wine has a great structure on the palate and good concentration. It has velvety tannins as well as a marked minerality, and a long finish.
