5 Star Provenance !!

Alto de la Ballena Reserva Cabernet Franc 2008 (6 x 750mL), Maldonado, Uruguay.

Grape Variety: 100% Cabernet Franc

Tasting Notes: Garnet red colour. Delicate aroma; mature red fruits, mint, caramel and vanilla are blended. In the mouth it has a velvet feel, good structure with soft tannins. Lingering finish, with aftertaste of chocolate and tobacco.

Vineyard: Sierra de la Ballena, Maldonado, Uruguay.

Age of the Vineyard: 11 years old

Time of Harvest: March 2008

Altitude: 80 metres above sea level

Harvest Method: Harvested by hand in small boxes.

Winemaking: The careful management of the vineyard using the best agricultural practices, along with low yields per vine, made it possible to produce high quality grapes for this wine. After being hand harvested in small boxes, the grapes were lightly crushed and underwent cold maceration for two days. Fermentation then took place in stainless steel vats at controlled temperature. The optimum ripeness achieved in the vineyard enabled the wine to be kept in contact with the skins for twenty days once the alcoholic fermentation had finished. It was aged in French oak barrels for 12 months. To preserve its qualities it was lightly filtered and bottled without stabilising.

Winemaker: Paula Pivel and Soledad Mello

Cellar Condition

Provenance; “Place of origin; derivation”

  • The history of the ownership of an object, especially when documented or authenticated. Used for Artworks, Antiques, and Wine.
  • The records or documents authenticating such an object or the history of its ownership.

Whenever you buy wine there is an inherent risk, as wine is a perishable good regardless of whether it is sealed under cork or screwcap. At GraysOnline we minimise the risk to you by providing as much information as possible regarding the provenance of the wine we sell.

We take the time to individually inspect each bottle and photograph it so you know exactly what you are buying. All Private Cellar wine stored at GraysOnline is kept in a temperature controlled wine storage area. Any wine that doesn’t meet our quality standards will not be sold.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Wines displaying a 5 star designation are recognised as being of proven quality provenance, our team has verified that the wine has been stored correctly from original purchase straight from the winery, documentation, where possible, has been sighted and cellaring conditions have been inspected. This wine generally comes from only the best and most respected of wine collectors in Australia.

★ ★ ★ ★

Wines displaying a 4 star designation have been cellared correctly as verified by the current owners. In general these wines have been purchased from retailers or traders and stored in cellared conditions from original purchase.

★ ★ ★

Wines displaying a 3 star designation are in good condition when we inspect and we are able to confirm some cellaring conditions but we are unable to verify all ownership and storage conditions of their history.

A wine displaying no stars doesn’t mean that there is a problem with the wine, it simply means that we have been unable to verify provenance, however a quality image is always available for the purchaser to make their own purchasing decisions.

Private Cellar wine is wine which has been stored for aging purposes in a Private Cellar.

Storing the wine and allowing it to age has the potential to improve the quality of the wine. While wine is perishable and capable of deteriorating, storing the wine can alter the aroma, colour, mouthfeel and taste of the wine in a way that may be more pleasing to the taster.
