The Winery

Located in Mendoza, next to the eastern mountain range of the Andes, the Séptima winery is in the most important wine-producing region of Argentina. 360 hectares of vineyards at 1,050 meters above sea level, totally manual and individualized care of the vines, great respect for the land and a production process with minimal intervention, make Séptima wines of the highest quality.

Elaboration - Vinification

The wine obtained is aged in second-use French and American barrels for 10 months.

The grapes come from vineyards located in Luján de Cuyo and Valle de Uco, with approximate yields of 8,000 kg/ha. They are hand-picked and placed in 300 kg bins. The must obtained is refrigerated and cold maceration is performed for approximately 3 days. Fermentation is carried out for 10 days with selected yeasts at a controlled temperature of 28 °C. Once the fermentation is finished, wine is kept with its lees for 5 more days. Then, the free-run wine is devatted and the remaining pomace is pressed. The free-run wine is racked to separate the thickest sediments, and it is later centrifuged and stabilized. The wine obtained is aged in second-use French and American barrels for 10 months. Lastly, the wine is filtered and bottled.

Vineyard - Viticulture

It is a complex and elegant 100% Malbec wine elaborated with grapes from different oases in Mendoza.

It is a complex and elegant 100% Malbec wine elaborated with grapes from different oases in Mendoza, where the alluvial silt loam soils are very deep, with low contents of organic matter and excellent permeability. The grapes from the district of Luján de Cuyo, at 1,050 m.a.s.l., bring out notes of plum and red berries. The grapes from Valle de Uco, at 1,400 m.a.s.l. and with a wide day-to-night temperature range that favours the formation of polyphenols, contribute aromas of flowers and blackberries.
