Federico Galdean and Enrique Tirado created an
icon wine as an offering to the god of wind. Revealing distinctive qualities of Malbec and contributions of a magnificent Mendozan Syrah, they arrived at this unsurpassable specimen.
Zeus conferred upon Eolo the power to ignite and calm winds: to seize and liberate them, engendering great changes in the heavens, on earth, and at sea¨. These are
the words with which ancient mythology immortalized the guardian of wind.\"
To the east of the Mendoza River in Lujan de Cuyo, 2985 ft. above sea level, Eolo oversees ten acres. This vineyard was born in 1912. It is home to great thermal amplitudes and fleeting vegetation in its alluvial, flood-irrigated soil.
The precious fruit was harvested by hand between the 5th 20th of April, 2005, before arriving at the winery where our team of winemakers completed the selection process. The 10th of May, 2007, Trivento EOLO Malbec 2005 was trapped into bottles.
After passing 12 months in the bottle, Trivento EOLO Malbec 2005 was recently launched to the market this winter. It has already been the recipient of a 93-point rating in the acclaimed American magazine, Wine Spectator (June 30, 2008). James Molesworth describes it: ¨loaded, with a huge core of raspberry ganache, currant paste, warm fig and melted black licorice flavors that all
glide over rich, creamy tannins. Muscular but accessible, with a super long finish…drink now through 2014.¨
Its creators have compiled the following tasting notes:
Color: Its a reassuringly attractive red issuing violet hues.
Aroma: Ripe cherry smoky coconut and subtle bilberry jam from a matrix of engaging aromas.
Palate: Lively and elegant on the palate, it quivers in the mouth.
A red grape variety commonly grown in Argentina. Argentinian Malbecs can be ripe and lush, and capable of extended aging.
