The winery was founded in 1910 by Polish immigrant Don Sami Flichman.  He purchased property in Barrancas (southern Maipu) and planted vines in rocky, well-drained plots situated along the Mendoza river. It was Sami's son Isaac who first began to make fine wine at the estate, including Caballero de la Cepa, one of the first high-quality wines that garnered international awareness for premium Argentinian wines. Sogrape Vinhos purchased Finca Flichman in 1998, and invested heavily in restoring the vineyards and equipping the winery with modern equipment. The original Barrancas vineyard remains among their 400 hectares of vines, which also includes the higher altitude Tupungato vineyard. Today the wines are made by Germán Berra, one of Argentina's brightest talents, who was recognised as the Best Young Winemaker in the Argentina Wine Awards in 2016. Germán works closely with consultant and renowned winemaker Alberto Antonini.

Vineyards
Grapes for the Misterio Malbec are picked from the Barrancas region in southern Maipu, Mendoza. The vines here are planted in rocky, well-drained plots situated along the south side of the Mendoza river. The vineyards sit at high altitudes, meaning that there are large temperature differences between day and night. This extends the growing season and helps to retain freshness and finesse in the wines.

Vinification
The grapes were hand-picked and then fermented for eight days at temperatures between 28-30°C. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation and was aged in oak barrels for four months prior to bottling.

Tasting Notes
Deep red in colour, with a complex aroma of violets and black plums. On the palate, plush flavours of blackberries and tobacco leaves are complemented by sweet tannins and an elegant and complex finish.

Please note: Vintages may vary. If you require a specific vintage please contact us in advance to check.
