Growing Conditions

For SUNAL ICONO wine-maker Agustin Lanus
worked with grapes sourced from four small extreme altitude
vineyards, located in three provinces that make up the
Calchaqui Valley, Argentina: Salta, Tucuman and Catamarca
provinces. The vineyards are located between 2,200 meters
and 2,700 meters, making them among the highest in the


The grapes are hand-harvested.


The wine
made using 100% native yeast, cold pre-fermentation for 5
days, soft maceration of 30 days in total, natural malolactic

The ultra-premium SUNAL Malbec wine is
made from grapes grown at the very limits of where grapes
can be grown. The length of time required for grapes to mature
at such extreme altitudes results in thick skins and very low
yields, allowing the winemaker to produce an incredibly
complex and full-bodied wine.


The wine is aged for 24 months in a mix of French
oak, 50% new and 50% neutral used barrels. After bottled
unfined and unfiltered have been ages for 15 months.


The color is a rich purple.
