Canal Flores

Canal Flores wine highlights the essence of the Calle Cobos terroir. Intense, pure wines with fruit components and a balanced acidity. Canal Flores wines can be appreciated typically in a blend that combines a lead of Malbec, blended with Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. It is a wine based on concentrated fruit from over 100 year old Malbec vines, with average yields of ~1,5 kg per plant and 6-8 tons per hectare. It is aged for around 12 months in French oak. We produced this wine in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013, and only in 2011 we also produced a special and limited series of Canal Flores with a blend consisting 60% barrel fermented wine and 40% fermented in small 400 liter bins.

Leyendas y Cuentos: El Jinete Blanco

Leyendas y Cuentos: El Jinete Blanco is produced only in years with best growing conditions, with grapes from specific rows of over 100 year old vines in Cobos Vineyard. The only production year of this wine so far has been in 2012, where growing conditions were perfect. Yield in this specific rows is the lowest of the three wines with around 500gr per vine or 2.5 tons per ha.

Leyendas y Cuentos: El Jinete Blanco it a wine that pays tribute to Mendoza and its wine related legends, myths and tales. Every harvest we produce this wine, we will honor in the label a legend or myth from Mendoza.

It is a concentrated and elegant wine that displays at the same time a deep intensity and an exquisite balance. This wine is all micro-fermented in 225 liter new French oak barrels, in order to obtain optimal extraction of color, aromas and flavor and add complexity through early contact with oak. After fermentation, it is aged around 16-18 months in new French oak. Total production in 2012, the only year so far we produced this wine, of only 170 cases.

PIREKO

Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pedro Gimenez

Pireko, that in the old indigenous language means “water from the melted mountain snow”, is the youngest of our wines and was created in 2016.

It comes from the same terroir and vineyard and is the result of a strict grape selection with hand harvesting.

Pireko is a fresh and fruity wine, that is produced with little intervention and without any oak influence.

Since 2017 we produce three 100% varietals under the Pireko brand: Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and the white Pedro Gimenez, all from the Cobos vineyard.

Pireko is an excellent introduction to Spielmann Estates and the Cobos vineyard, since it bears the same terroir tipicity, opening up sooner with a fresher and younger style.

VIÑEDO 1910

Viñedo 1910, as it names indicates, is a wine produced exclusively with grapes from the Malbec vines planted in 1910. In this vineyard we have separated a specific lot in order to produce very concentrated fruit for this unique wine.
High quality grapes are achieved through green harvest to produce few bunches of concentrated fruit, and yields average 750gr – 1kg per plant, or 4-5 tons per ha.
In addition this wine is micro-fermented in small 1000 liter tanks, in order to increase grape skin to must contact and optimize extraction of color, aromas and flavor.  It is aged for around 15 months in French oak.
The first year of production of Viñedo 1910 wine was 2012.

About us

Company details

I, Rodolfo Spielmann, born and raised in Argentina, founded and own Spielmann Winery following a dream to produce premium red wines in my home country. I developed this venture having lived and worked more than 25 years abroad in Europe, USA and South America. Having learned to appreciate and collect wines of the premier wine regions in Europe and the USA, I decided to produce my own single vineyard wines in Mendoza.
In 2009 I discovered and acquired the 30 hectare vineyard with its core of 1910 planted Malbec vines, and immediately focused its management to produce premium grapes. We had the first harvest in 2010, the year of the centenary of the Malbec vines. From that time on up to the present, both winemaker Pepe Galante and myself have kept the focus on ultra premium wines and slightly increased the wine portfolio to four wines.
Spielmann Estates is my dream to produce unique red wines that reflect the full potential of the terroir and the old vines. My venture is focused on producing small quantities of ultra premium, single vineyard wines based on 4 differentiating factors:

  • a unique vineyard on Calle Cobos in Perdriel, Mendoza;
  • old Malbec vines planted on their rootstock in 1910 that produce few bunches of concentrated berries;
  • a focus on low yields, with a small quantity of grapes per plant;
  • micro-vinification, a boutique winemaking process for optimal extraction of color, aroma and flavor from the grapes.
