MARIFLOR CAMILLE - Mendoza
A new flower has bloomed in 2007!
Camille is our first granddaughter and this confidential cuvée is like an Ode to her beauty.
With the best grapes of Mariflor, selected from the vineyard for their purety and taste quality, the idea came to us to elaborate a small top cuvée, mainly with malbec, more cabernet franc, syrah and merlot to bring complexity and originality, every year in different percentage following the capacity of success of each grape-variety according to the climatology.
It’s a real blend, a unique creation, customized, “haute couture” and the best expression of a terroir, the Mariflor’s one.
Hand-crafted with entire grape-berries, selected by double sorting, fermented by grape-variety, directly in new French oak barrels, with punching and no mechanical action except the barrels rolling.
Then wines are aged during 24 months in the same barrels to arrive at the ideal maturating.
Typicity, complexity, elegance, ability to age: the exception on behalf of our little princess!
