This Malbec was produced with grapes from our vineyard high in the Tolombón Valley, province of Salta, situated 1700 meters above sea level. The best grapes from the vineyard undergo a second round of selection and spend a minimum of 6 months in oak barrels.

Originary from Bordeaux, in the region of Cahors, the Malbec grape came from France to Argentina in the mid nineteenth century. It quickly found an appropriate environment and developed a new unique personality. Towards the end of that century, a pest of phylloxera exterminated the entirety of the Malbec crops in France. That is why, today, Malbec is synonymous with Argentina.

Intense ruby ​​red with violet edges. Very fruity, typical of the region, with notes of plum, raisins and pepper. The time spent in French oak barrels contributes subtle notes of vanilla and toasted aromas. Voluminous, intense structure, with soft and gentle tannins, balanced and harmonious finish.
