Palate

Dense and concentrated but never loses its ability to exude the red and black fruits and spice that are the true expression of Malbec in Mendoza.

Growing Conditions

High altitude vineyard of 3200 ft. Cool nights and a wide thermal amplitude. In fact, temperature decreases approximately 1°C for every 100m increase in height. Plant respiration at night is a key physiological process that is highly influenced by temperature. Cool temperatures in high altitude regions allow for lower respiration rates, which enhances the concentration of malic acid in the berries. Therefore, wines sourced from high altitude regions offer higher acid levels. Cooler temperatures also allow berries to maintain other quality such as anthocyanins and aromatics compounds typical of each variety. Soil profile: gravel,sandy soil. Rocks and limestone, big alluvial rocks.

20 months in 50% new oak and 50% second use French oak barrels aged sur lies.
