When we began to explore the Uco Valley, we understood that the common denominator of its vineyards is the origin of its soils: alluvial. Soils originated millions of years ago, through the floods that with the force of the water, transported, from the mountain, all the rocks, sediments, and minerals on which our vines grow today. This is why we find different places at the foot of the Cordillera, with an enormous heterogeneity of landscapes, soils, and climates. And our challenge is to show that identity with transparency, that’s why we chose Malbec as a vehicle of expression. Grape movement by gravity, fermentation in concrete vats with native yeasts, maceration of 20- 25 days and aged in barrels and concrete vats. Bottled unfiltered. The harvest had warm temperatures during winter and rains that exceeded the average in summer.
