Grape – Ancellotta

Where – Mendoza, Argentina

What – The Pixels Ancellotta is impressive for the price. Made with 100% Ancellotta grapes grown in the infamous Mendoza region of Argentina, it’s the perfect balance of sweet and spicy.

 

The vineyards are located on arid soils and desert dunes which creates wine with heaps of unique character. This wine is the product of a family who cater for a young, bold and creative customer.

 

The grapes undergo a thermomaceration and pomace pressing before fermentation on selected yeasts and conservation in concrete tanks.

 

The resulting wine is a tempting deep purple colour that looks great in the glass. It’s smooth with delicate aromas of violet, echinacea and dark fruits; damson, plum and cherry. Crushed black pepper adds a savoury note that contributes to the balanced overall finish. The tannins are subtle and soft, making for a really easy-going option.

 

For a fun twist, you can download an app (Advanced Vision) that opens up a whole new world to discover. The Pixels Ancellotta really takes the funky label vibe to the next level; augmented reality. It’s new, it’s engaging and is a great way to enjoy wine!

 

Spicy, fruity, easy. Vegan. 13% ABV.
