The Winery is located in Mendoza Province, in the West of Argentina Republic, a prominent region for the agricultural crops, with worldwide acknowledgement. Our crops, located at the East of Mendoza, the full expression of local vines, a land full of constant contrasts between technology and natural landscape.
The arid lands and the desert dunes were conditioned for creating crops with a unique character that are nothing less than an homage to the noble traditional viticulture, along the wit and vanguard of the Oasis philosophy of Mendoza. Our wines are produced with grapes from our own vineyards, specially cared to leave our trademark in each member of the Corbeau Wines family. 874 acres in 4 vineyards with different soils, climates and grapes, allow us to create unique blends.
Caballero De La Cepa Reserve Malbec
Grapes for the Caballero de la Cepa wines are picked from the Barrancas region in southern Maipú, Mendoza. The vines here are planted in rocky, well-drained plots situated along the south side of the Mendoza river. The vineyards sit at high altitudes - 1,100 metres above sea level - meaning that there are large temperature differences between day and night. This extends the growing season and helps to retain freshness and finesse in the wines.
The winery was founded in 1910 by Polish immigrant Don Sami Flichman. He purchased property in Barrancas (southern Maipú) and planted vines in rocky, well-drained plots situated along the Mendoza river. It was Sami’s son Isaac who first began to make fine wine at the estate, including Caballero de la Cepa, one of the first high-quality wines that garnered international awareness for premium Argentinian wines. Sogrape Vinhos purchased Finca Flichman in 1998, and invested heavily in restoring the vineyards and modernising the winery. The original Barrancas vineyard remains among their 400 hectares of vines, which also includes the higher altitude Tupungato vineyard. Today the wines are made by Germán Berra, one of Argentina’s brightest talents, who was recognised as the ‘Best Young Winemaker’ in the Argentina Wine Awards in 2016. Germán works closely with consultant and renowned winemaker Alberto Antonini.
In 2018, Finca Flichman achieved its record harvest of the last 20 years. Yields increased 92% compared to the previous harvest. Not only was it a memorable vintage in terms of quantity, but also in quality. Despite some rain during spring, the rest of the growing season was ideal and produced grapes of excellent quality.
This wine is ruby red in colour with blue hues. The aroma is perfumed and complex - a combination of violets, cherries and oak spice. On the palate, it is concentrated with blackberries, ripe plums and tobacco leaves. Sweet, ripe tannins balance the fruit.
The grapes were fermented for 12 days at a controlled temperature of 28°C, and underwent malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged in second and third-use French oak Foudres (500 litres) for six months and spent a further six months ageing in bottle.
