The Gran Lurton is a wonderful, expressive red wine cuvée from the Cabernet Sauvignon (80%) and Malbec (20%) grape varieties.
In the glass, this wine shines in a deep ruby red with ink-colored highlights. The striking bouquet reveals varietal aromas of ripe berries, juicy shade morals and fresh plum. Fine nuances of oak maturity are added. On the palate, this Argentinian red wine is pleasantly dry with a strong body, which is at the same time enveloped by soft tannins. The elegant structure of Cabernet Sauvignon combines to a wonderful harmony with the spicy character of Malbec. The final convinces with an elegant length.
Vinification of Cabernet Sauvignon Gran Lurton
At the foot of the Andes, in the wine-growing region of Mendoza, the grapes for this red wine grow. The berries are carefully harvested and selected in the wine cellar of Lurton. The mash is fermented in stainless steel tanks. This is regularly pumped over - as in the style of a Bordeaux wine. This red wine is then aged for 12 months in new, small wooden barrels of Allier, Troncais and American oak. The Grand Lurton is finally clarified with protein and filled onto the bottle unfiltered.
Food recommendation for the Gran Lurton Cabernet Sauvignon by Bodega Piedra Negra
Before enjoyment, this dry red wine from Argentina should be decanted for about 2 hours. Serve this wine with crust roasts in a reduced sauce or with roast beef with savoury axes in dark sauce.
