Growing Conditions

Well-drained alluvial soil of composed silt and limestone; A mixed texture with great oenological potential: shallow topsoil provides freshness, but the subsoil of stones and chalk limits growth, so that the vines produce smaller grapes with intensified flavours of complexity and depth. Dry and arid, with annual rainfall of just 200mm. The vineyard is close to the Mendoza river and benefits from the fresh breezes off the Andes, which generate a diurnal temperature variation (14C), ideal for a quality vineyard. With hot days and cold nights, we achieve good levels of sugar, while conserving the acidity, colour and aromas of the grapes.
