The 2013 Selection Blend of Terroir blends grapes and origins from the Valle de Uco. It's a Malbec-based red with 20% Petit Verdot and 10% Cabernet Franc mostly from La Consulta and Altamira (and other selected locations). Pelleriti fermented the Malbec together with the Petit Verdot and another part with the Cabernet Franc, all of it in rolling oak barrels with manual pigeage and indigenous yeasts. The wines matured in French oak barrels, 20% of them new, for 16 to 22 months depending on the lot, and then were kept in bottle for no less than 18 months before being released. This is a superb, balanced, classical, ripe and compact blend. It's well-oaked and powerful, with abundant, fine-grained tannins. It has great fruit, persistence and depth and it has the freshness and balance to develop nicely in bottle. 3,929 bottles were filled in November 2014.

Aromas of ripe fruits, sliced mushroom and hints of nuts. Full body, silky tannins and a long and refined finish. Very pretty and racy. Drink now.
