Argentina , being close to the Equator line, generates more ripe fruits with a lot of sugar in the grains (a differs from other production areas known worldwide as Burgundy, Rioja or Napa Valley), and this translates into more alcoholic wines with low acidity.
It is there that height comes into play, allowing a correction of these factors with a direct relationship between height, sugar and acidity .
Every 100 meters that the temperature rises the temperature drops 1º C approximately and thus achieve a more balanced ripeness of the grapes. Also, as you ascend the soils are poorer and stony and give less vigorous plants with more concentrated grapes, as the skin becomes thicker and that generates a greater concentration of aromas, structure and color.
The extreme thermal amplitude has a high level of incidence on plant growth. During the day the vine works in a warm climate that helps it ripen and at night, when the temperature drops, it produces aromas, thus preserving its freshness and natural acidity.
Bodega Tapiz is located in Finca San Pablo del Valle de Uco, 1350 meters above sea level, and is characterized by cold nights, due to the proximity of the mountain range and altitude, giving wines of great intensity in color, aroma and structure.
Tapestry Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon is made with grapes from its Finca and has a passage through French and American oak barrels for 13 months, adding well-integrated notes of vanilla, chocolate and a delicate spicy note.
Intense red colour. Delicate aromas of fresh red fruits, ripe plums, jams and cassis. On the palate, its tannins are firm, but sweet and kind. It is a balanced wine with great guarda potential.
In the embroidered tapestry of flavors, colors and aromas offered by our wines, we will now also add height, terroir and thermal amplitude.
