The vineyards are situated in Lujan de Cuyo, more specific in the districts of Ugarteche, Lunlunta and Drummond. The vines are defined to have a minimum age of 15 to 25 years, or older if possible. Only vines that have not been grafted can give grapes for Weinert Cabernet Sauvignon. The grapes are 100% de-stemmed and fermentation takes place in concrete vats for 7-9 days with skins plus 5-10 days without skins. A minimum of 4 years in European oak casks of 2000 to 6000 lbs, and a minimum of 3 month after blending back in concrete vats are base of a harmonious ageing for Weinert Cabernet Sauvignon wines before they will be bottled.

Often, classic is thought to mean a wine that is judged over a period of time to be the highest quality, outstanding for its kind. But more often it really means wines that are of an elemental, elegant style that don't allow themselves to be subject to change in fashion. In regions with hundreds of years of winemaking tradition classic wines pervade, but when searching the younger wine regions that search can become more difficult.

Bodegas y Cavas de Weinert in Argentina has crafted wines that are easily defined this way.

If you are skeptical that there are wines from Argentina that will impress even the most conservative palate, you need to try the wines of Bodegas Weinert. What makes them classic? For one, they do not allow their style to be influenced by group-think that sweeps through the industry on a regular basis. A key to their style is aging in large barrels of 2,000-6,000 liters and extended bottle maturation. This was traditional prior to the 1970s but has since been done away with in favor of the more fruit-forward and oak-influenced style that now defines most of the Mendoza wines. Only a handful of producers, like Carmelo Patti and Bodegas López (not available in the U.S.), still make their wine that way.

What you get in the glass are wines that are somewhere between textbook Medoc and old-school Rioja; at once nobel and seamless, but not without a definite dusty cowboy sensibility. These are sensational wines to have with a meal but can still be easily contemplated on their own. Even better, blind your more persnickety drinking partners on them and watch them gawk when they discover these are from Argentina. One thing is certain; these are undeniably delicious wines.
