These grapes were discovered at altitude in some of Mendoza’s best terroirs, including the Agrelo and Vistaflores subregions. Vineyards are planted at high density in the foothills of the Andes Mountains, starting above 975 meters (3,200 feet), where the altitude and poor soil result in lower yields and a cooler climate for balanced wines. Grapes are handpicked, destemmed and manually sorted, with only perfectly ripe fruit.

Harvest Note
Following a warm early winter, by mid-January temperatures started to drop and in February rain began to fall, continuing into the first week of March. Grapes took their time to ripen. When temperatures rose again in March, the weather turned dry and grapes suddenly began to ripen quickly, leading to an overlap between the harvests of white and red grapes. Despite the challenges, it was an exceptional year with good expression of fruit, balance, tangy acidity, mild alcohol and complex textures.
Tasting Note
Aromas of black fruit and vanilla, with creamy tannins. Beautiful structure and texture framed with touches of chocolate and toffee from the oak aging. The wine will continue to develop and improve for up to five years.
Food Pairing
A stealthy, silky wine, perfect for stewed and braised meats, grilled vegetables and righteous thievery.
