San Pedro de Yacochuya Michel Rolland - Yacochuya 2019


San Pedro de Yacochuya is the winery of flying Bordeaux winemaker Michel Rolland and the Etchart family in Salta’s Cafayate valley. Making perfumed Torrontes and powerful Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec.

From the 60-year-old vines of Finca Yacochuya in Valles Calchaquíes, the grapes are handpicked and the wines are aged in French oak barrels. Yacochuya wines were the first to be barrel-fermented in Argentina.

Bright with an intense violet color. Intense aroma, sweet entry, balanced acidity with a very marked fruity character, and a contribution of oak that gives it complexity. In the mouth it repeats the fruity character, with good varietal typicity, spicy touches, firm and ripe tannins. Slight taste of pepper provided by the Cabernet Sauvignon.
