Finca Flichman Dedicado

Mendoza, mendoza Argentina

The winery was founded in 1910 by Don Sami Flichman, who emigrated to Argentina from Łódź in Poland. He purchased property in Barrancas (southern Maipú) 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. Trained in oenology in France, Isaac and winemaker Raúl de la Mota created Caballero de la Cepa, one of the first high-quality wines that garnered international awareness for premium Argentinian wines.

The Guedes family-owned Sogrape purchased Finca Flichman in 1998, and invested heavily in restoring the vineyards and equipping the winery with modern equipment. Finca Flichman still owns their original Barrancas vineyard but since 1998 has expanded to the higher altitudes of Tupungato. Situated at the foot of the Andes, the vineyards benefit from large diurnal temperature variations, which result in longer ripening seasons and more elegant styles. Today, the wines are made by Germán Berra, who grew up in Mendoza in an Italian-Argentinian family. With winemaking experience gained in California and the Côtes du Rhône, Germán is one of Argentina’s brightest talents, and was recognised as the ‘Best Young Winemaker’ in the Argentina Wine Awards in 2016. His expertise in viticulture and winemaking are also utilised in his role as Head Professor of Viticulture at Maza University. Germán is supported by consultant and renowned winemaker Alberto Antonini and Pedro Parra, the South American expert on soil and vineyard mapping.

Dedicado

When Sami’s son Isaac started making wine at the estate, for decades the very best wine was not released to the market, but rather kept in the family cellar and given as gifts. On the bottle was a handwritten label - ‘Dedicado a amigos’ (dedicated to friends) – which is the inspiration behind Finca Flichman’s flagship wines made from the very best hand-harvested parcels of fruit. Grapes for these wines are sourced from estate vineyards in Tupungato in the Uco Valley and from Barrancas in Southern Maipú. The Tupungato single vineyard provides fruit for the Chardonnay, Malbec and the Tupungato Blend (which comprises of Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot). The Barrancas single vineyard blend is made of Syrah, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon.

The Syrah used in the Barrancas Blend comes from the oldest Syrah vines in Argentina, having been planted in 1927 by Isaac Flichman who brought cuttings over from the Rhône. The 'Gran Malbec' and 'Gran Corte' are aged for longer - 12 months in French oak barrels with an additional year in the bottle. The 'Gran Corte' is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Syrah. Winemakers Germán Berra and Alberto Antonini together with Pedro Parra have crafted a series of wines which pay homage to the winery’s ancestors as well as the land on which the vines grow.
