Product Description

Viejo Isaias Bonarda Clasico 2013 is made from 100% Bonarda

Bonarda is typically characterized by a palette of deep reds, purples and blacks. The primary and most intense aromas that can be perceived in the nose are red fruits, such as strawberry, raspberry, blackberry and cherry. Due to a short ageing in oak, slight aromas of vanilla and tobacco can be found, which provide the wine with complexity. In the palate it presents a rich, meaty structure, with pronounced tannins, flavors reminiscent of red and black berries, and a long, persistent finish.

The Viejo Isaias Estate
The owner and winemaker is Rodrigo Manuel Romero. 2004 was the first vintage for this winery. Total current production: 4,200 cases. The label represents both grandparents of the winemaker. The rose on the label signifies the first new rose of each season--every year his grandfather Isaias would watch for the first rose to give to his wife, Juana.

The Viejo Isaias Vineyard
The grapes are sourced in Perdriel, Lujan de Cuyo and Upper river Mendoza region. Rocky, sandy soils located 950 meters above sea level, irrigated by flooding river waters coming from the Andes mountain range, make the perfect match for vine growing. They use purchased grapes and farm 11 hectares (27.17 acres) of their own vineyards of Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon, and will plant another 5 acres of Malbec in the summer of 2008. In 2009 they will plant a Syrah vineyard.
