This Goyenechea winery was established in 1868 and is today run by 5 cousins of the Goyenechea family. The company owns vineyards on some of the best sites on the banks of the Rio Atuel in San Rafael where the climate is cool, ensuring that only grapes of the highest standard are used to make their wines.
The grapes for the 5ta Generation Malbec are from the La Vasconia Estate with vineyards at 515 metres above sea level. The wine spends 14 months in French oak.
The nose firstly gives up vanilla and smoke from the oaking, followed by red fruits and plum aromas. It has a good volume on the palate, robust structure representative of the good vintage. This is complex with a spicy undertow, which balances the freshness and abundant fruit. Still relatively young, this wine really gets better in the glass, but will definitely cellar for 5 years.
