90 Points By James Suckling
In the mid 1880s Pascual Toso set out towards Argentina from its home town, Canale D’Alba, in Piamonte, Italy, he could not have imagined that he would become the founder of a winery, which is today one of the oldest and most prestigious wineries in Argentina.
When he arrived in Argentina, he settled in Mendoza. As he had been closely involved in the development of his family wine business in Piedmont, he promptly saw the promising future for winemaking in the region and decided to use his expertise. Thus, in 1890, Pascual Toso established his first winery in San José, Guaymallén.
At the beginning of the 20th century, he decided to expand his business and acquired vineyards in Maipú. At his estate “Las Barrancas”, he built another winery, “Las Barrancas” (small Canyon) which is dedicated to producing and growing the finest grapes.
In 2001, the Bodega hired as winemaker consultant to Mr. Paul Hobbs for a new high quality wine project. He has been working head to head with our chief winemaker, Rolando Luppino, on the development of premium and super-premium wines. Today, Pascual Toso still makes wines of high quality under the most exigent procedures and rules. The Trophy for Best Argentine Producer awarded by the IWSC (London) in 2007 reflects this commitment to quality.
To create this wine, Pascual Toso winemaker’s have selected the most concentrated grapes, looking for the best varietals expression, cluster-by-cluster. The wine is fermented for ten days, and undergoes maceration over fifteen days, post fermentation. It ages for eighteen months in new French oak barrels and is then bottled with one soft filtration. It remains in bottle one year prior to release.
This fine wine is produced with grapes grown in Pascual Toso's own vineyards, located in Las Barrancas, Maipú. This zone is considered one of the best areas for vines in Mendoza, with excellent climate and a frank and stony soil. The grapes undergo cold maceration for 72 hours before fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks. Afterwards, there is a further 15-20 days of maceration. After malolactic fermentation occurs, the wine is aged for 12 months in new oak barrels: 20% French and 80% American. This wine then sees an additional six months of bottle aging prior to release.
Pascual Toso Cabernet Reserva
Las Barrancas is in a stunning location with premium quality soils, ideal climate and environment, located in Mendoza, in the district of Maipu within the Mendoza River highland. In the area, at around 750 meters above sea level, more than 400 hectares belong to Pascual Toso.
It is a heterogeneous terroir, an uneven piece of land going down 7 meters, where stretch soils with bare rock in which grapes stand up with all its quality, to deeper soils with green coverage.
Las Barrancas possess excellent conditions for climatic agriculture, with warm days and fresh nights, low humidity relative and high heatstroke what is translated in vineyards with excellent quality of fruits and sanity. The water for irrigation comes from the snow of the Andes mountain trough the main River of the county, “Mendoza River”. Organic matter is very scarce due to the quick decomposition it goes through because rains are not heavy and there is intensive cultural activity. Although the soils are of similar origin, various textures may be found in small areas.
