Waiting for Valentine's Day

Meet the first Argentine wine with long maturation.


There are moments of the year that are highly anticipated. One of them is Valentine's Day and, although we know the trade around this day, we allow ourselves to connect with a time when we like to pamper and be pampered.

In winemaking there are also expected moments, and the most desired is vintage. In some cases the winemaker decides to postpone that moment, giving more time to the ripening of the grapes.

In Caucete, San Juan, in Bodega Callia, the winemaker in charge, José Morales, has decided to make a long maturation, hoping that the grapes spend some time in the vine and then be harvested and thus produce a wine of great fruit expression.

Expected de Callia is a bivarietal Syrah-Malbec with a sweet taste, but at the same time it is a light and fruity red; ideal for taking fresh, away from meals, as an aperitif or as a corollary of a preferably light dinner.

An interesting fact of Esperado is its relatively low alcohol content: 13.3%. Another feature that, combined with its sweetness and kindness, make it an attractive drink for an audience not accustomed to the consumption of wine.

Esperado is the first Argentine wine to represent a category that grows globally (that of prolonged maturation), especially in the United States where consumers approach wine with new codes, both cultural and taste. The long maturation offers those who decide to know it, a fruity taste, friendly palate and an innovative style.

A wine that promises a concentration of flavors and pleasures making a desired moment one that we do not forget. And perhaps, on this Valentine's Day, we can find that long-awaited moment.
