The grapes of Veteris Conventus are borne of our ancestral vineyards in Carrodilla in the heart of the Primera Zona Vitivinicola at the base of the Andes Mountains. The combination of the location at the 33rd parallel, being 850 metres above sea level and the age of our vineyards creates a grape that is truly unique. The circa 130 year old vine stocks produce perfectly cultivated grapes containing well-balanced tannins due to the many years of adaptation to the lands of Man, not machine, cultivates the produce of our vineyards, just as it has been for several family generations. The earth is still turned by a horse-drawn plough and is naturally irrigated with pure water from melted snow high up on the Andes range with clusters still harvested by hand. Implementation of the defoliation technique allows the grapes to receive maximum sunlight and fresh air, yielding the perfect grape for a well-balanced wine. Malbeck is made with organically certified grapes, has a clean and intensely ruby red hue with vivid sparkling notes and great transparency. To the nose it gives a distinct variety of aromas like those of fresh strawberries and ripe plums. Aromas such as vanilla, tobacco and chocolate can be detected along with the agreeable notes of the French oak casks. To the taste, the wine gradually reveals its complex and strong structure. This wine ideally compliments game or red meat. Our Tannant is the pride of Veteris Conventus! Julius Caesar introduced this complexly bred wine to France but it has been widely forgotten due to its complicated formulation. When created properly, this wine has characteristics like no other wine. The sweet tannins and balanced acids give the palate an initial, yet long enduring taste. To the nose, it gives a bouquet of fresh forest wild fruits such as gooseberry and raspberry along with subtle undertones of pear and pineapple. The aroma of the French oak casks always present accompanied by a delightful sweet vanilla scent. Again, this wine is an ideal accompaniment to game, red meats or casserole stews.
