Why Wine?

Wine is the way we choose to make a difference in this world. Why? Because the abandoned youth we support live in wine country, Argentina. And what better way to build up communities and generations by activating our purchasing power through a product we enjoy regularly. Family owned vineyards and abandoned youth go together like cheese and wine. How do we know? Because we watched it literally transform the lives of hundreds of oppressed communities when done right. Join our movement for wine tips, food and wine recipes and stories about the abandoned youth your wine purchase supports. Stay with us if you are a wine lover who dares to change the world.

HARVEST & VINTAGE NOTES


VINEYARDS: Grapes are sourced from multiple small, family- run vineyards in the regions of Mendoza, Luján de Cuyo & Maipú, within the districts of Drummond, Lunlunta, Agrelo, Perdriel, Ugarteche and Russell. Small vineyards are abundant in Mendoza and are an important part of the economy, especially within rural and lower income areas.


VINTAGE NOTES: In 2017, Spring frosts brought on by dryer and slightly cooler weather, and subsequent hard winds caused couloure, resulting in low yields throughout Mendoza. Nevertheless, good weather during harvest (March) with no

hail or rain storms, provided conditions for excellent quality and healthy fruit, with clean bright expressions.


VINIFICATION: Grapes are hand picked into 20kg cases, moved to the winery, then immediately crushed. Alcoholic fermentation takes place over 7-10 days at 78.8°–82.4°F (26°- 28°C). The fermenting juice is pressed with residual sugar and the fermentation is finished with no skin contact. Malolactic fermentation takes place during the Autumn and Winter. In the Spring, the wines are pre-filtered and moved into casks to age for a minimum of 1.5 years.


TASTING NOTES: Carrascal Malbec has a perfect combination of the typical Cahor nose of violets, and the fruit expression of Mendoza. It also shows deep floral and inky notes, aromas of dried plums and cherries, in addition to toffee and leathery

notes from its aging in French oak casks.
