Atamisque Serbal Assemblage 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

*New Release* Atamisque is a boutique winery in the Tupungato subzone of Mendoza, owned by Frenchman John Du Monceau and his wife Chantal. The original Estancia (farm) was established in the mid 17th Century by Jesuit settlers. In contrast to its historic origins the very modern winery has quickly become a visual icon of the region with its striking slate roof. The emphasis here is on producing wines with restrained elegance and complexity (John's grandfather was a winemaker in Burgundy...), which combine traditional French techniques with the unique terroir of Tupungato, giving structured age-worthy wines with very vibrant, pure fruit. Aromas of dark fruit with brooding damson, wild strawberry, and raspberry along with violet, spice and pencil lead notes . The palate is very well-defined, with fine and tight tannins and crisp acidity lending structure to the wonderful pure and vivid fruit. Very enjoyable now, this will also cellar well for a decade or more. Drink now until 2025. The 2013 has not yet been reviewed by critics, but below are the comments from Decanter magazine when rating the 2013 'outstanding'. "Spice and deep peppery notes on the nose; smokey and sultry with very seductive mouthfeel and great purity of fruit. Lovely." - Phil Crozier "Bright and super pungent Cabernet Franc, this is electric and refreshing from the beginning. Its flavours of red fruit and herbal notes are combined with a tense acidity." - Patricio Tapia
