Our vineyards are located in Alto Agrelo in Luján de Cuyo. The vineyard expands over 72 hectares of old vines at 1,050 metres above sea level. We aim to produce balanced, complex and exceptional artisanal wines which are representative of the Mendoza terroir.
This Malbec is produced from grapes harvested from Perdriel, Ugarteche, Luján de Cuyo and Agrelo where thermal amplitude is significant. The vineyards have a sandy loam surface with stony soil below. Surface irrigation. Vines planted at 4,000 vines per hectare.
After a cool vintage in 2017 with lower yields than usual, 2018 was a classic Mendoza vintage: Dry, cool and sunny with moderate yields in all regions and altitudes. This, together with low rainfall, resulted in optimum balance in the fruit with good levels of natural acidity, intense aromatic expression and soft tannins.
