Finca Decero

2018 Cabernet Franc Mini Ediciones, Finca Decero

Mendoza, ArgentinaVintage: 2018

Finca Decero is a world-class wine producer located in the Agrelo sub-appellation of Luján de Cuyo in the northwestern part of the province of Mendoza.  Their famed Remolinos Vineyard derives its name from the little whirlwind spiral formations of soil which form in the afternoon as the gentle wind lifts the dry soil from the paths of the vineyard into swaying ‘dust devils’.  This natural phenomenon draws the attention of our overly protective Lechuza owls in the vineyard who sometimes take flight seemingly to chase them away!

2018 is a stellar vintage in Mendoza and will be long remembered.

The 2018 Decero Mini Ediciones Cabernet Franc is one of their ‘rare varieties & limited edition’ wines. Of this vintage, only 7,192 bottles were made. The wine shows nuances of pepper, graphite and plum notes with fresh aromatics and taut acidity resulting in a well-structured, elegant Cabernet Franc with great potential for ageing.

Notable Awards
Best of Argentina Report 2020, Tim Atkin MW.  “Wines of the Year: Best Cabernet Franc”
Now made with three different clones (312, 327 and R9), this Cabernet Franc was always good but has ramped up a gear in terms of perfume and complexity in 2018. Deeply coloured, leafy and refined, this has filigree tannins, layers of black cherry and red berry fruit, a twist of tangerine and nuanced oak. Outstanding. 2022-26.  95 Points

Born of the world-class vision of Swiss owner Thomas Schmidheiny, Finca Decero is an acclaimed wine estate and the location of our one-of-a-kind Remolinos vineyard in Agrelo, Mendoza.

In 2000, the decision was taken to start “from scratch” (as Decero means). Unencumbered by history, starting with a blank canvas they were able to make critical early decisions which determined our path towards establishing an exceptional wine estate.

First and foremost was the carefully considered site selection of virgin land in the highest part of Agrelo. At an altitude of 1050m/3500ft, this land was chosen for its pristine water quality of glacial meltwater from an underlying aquifer and a unique tapestry of soils unmatched in the surrounding area. In these early days, they extensively analysed the environment both below and above ground and consequently made variety and clone selections specifically suited to areas within the vineyard.

25-30 days total maceration:  5-7 days cold soak;
10 days fermentation in small wide stainless steel tanks. 78°f for most aromatic parcels and 86°f for parcels with more concentration to derive more texture;
15-18 days extended maceration.
Gently basket pressed before 90% goes into French oak barrels (30% new) for malo-lactic fermentation and 14 months maturation. 10% remains in tank to preserve the delicate violet aromatics.
