Vinification and aging

Fermentation in small stainless steel vats and spontaneous malolactic fermentation. Aged separately in small French barrels for 12 months. Blended, the wine is then placed again in French barrel for 6 extra months. Bottled unfiltered and un-stabilized to preserve the unique character.

Terroir

The Calchaqui Valley is a remote location hidden in the Northwest of Argentina capable of producing exceptional wines: highly concentrated, rich in color, aromas and flavor. Poor sandy soils, moderate winds, high sun exposure, low humidity and an altitude exceeding 1800 meters | 6000 feet make this terroir unique in this world.
