Intense violet red colour. Intense aromas of red fruits, with notes of blackberries, chocolate and spices. Fruity on the palate, soft, ripe and silky tannins, balanced, full-bodied and an exceptional finish.

Bodega del Fin del Mundo is a relatively new winery, it was founded in 1999 when the first vineyards were planted in a deserted region of virgin land in the southerly province of Neuquen. In order to cope with the very dry climate it was necessary to lay a 20km long irrigation canal to provide water supply. Once the problem of water shortage was solved it was necessary to deal with the strong winds of the area by placing extensive wind breaks around the vineyard in its infancy. In 2002 the construction of the new winery was started, it is 5,000m2 with state of the art equipment. It was here that the first commercial production was achieved in 2003 and the winery was officially launched.

Special Blend is a unique wine, which represents the immensity, purity and freshness of Argentine Patagonia. This wine was created in years where nature provided us with exceptional conditions. It is a blend of 40% Malbec, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot, made from grapes manually selected from our best vineyards, aged in French oak barrels that give it complexity and elegance.

The three varieties are vinified separately, with a traditional maceration of 30 days, using the pisage and delestage techniques. Malolactic fermentation occurs 100%. The aging in French oak barrels is carried out in two stages, during the first 12 months each variety separately, then the blend returns to barrels for six more months, thus completing the 18 months of aging, having, finally, 6 months of aging in bottle.

Drinking well now but will reward cellaring for between 10 and 15 years.
