The rushing water from the Andes, the rocky soil beneath our feet, the clear sky above. This is our unique terroir. We chose our finest parcels and vines. We hand-picked our finest grapes and utilized the process of microvinification. We aged the wine in new French oak for 24 months. This time consuming, tireless process all for the creation of our grandest expression – our Unique Terroir. A wine to be enjoyed tomorrow or for years to come.

Production: Microvinification in first use French barrels. 24 month aging in French oak barrels.
Looking only to the finest selection of grapes planted on our best parcels on premium rocky soil, the grapes that are selected for this wine are manually harvested. A cold maceration, at 46.4 °F, takes place for two days, followed by alcoholic fermentation in first use French oak barrels whereby the daily movement of the wine begins to offer the first hints of the fruit. Finally, a post-fermentation maceration then occurs for fifteen days, at a temperature maintained between 82 °F- 86 °F, to express the aromatic potential of the wine.
This fine wine produces an intense red color with violet undertones. It offers a complex aroma reminiscent of fruits, such as blueberries and blackberries. The round tannins are savored in the mouth and offer an aftertaste with subtle hints of chocolate and tobacco. The combination of the oak and the characteristics exclusive to our unique terroir produce this Argentine Malbec, a mighty and elegant wine.
