Fernando Dupont - Punta Corral
The 2013 Punta Corral is a blend of 80% Malbec with 10% each Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon fermented with indigenous yeasts and aged for eight months in French barriques. The ripe and powerful nose is loaded with dark fruits, plenty of earthy notes and hints of the Syrah that turn more balsamic and adds notes of mint and other herbs with time. The grapes at that high altitude ripen quite wildly and it shows in the wine. The dense and lush palate is full-bodied with decadent tannins, charred flavors and a
very intense finish. This is a powerful, high-altitude red. For fans of the style. 3,000 bottles produced.
