Wine story

A blend of 100% Malbec grapes harvested by hand from vineyards in Medrano, Barrancas, and Lunlunta- 50% Estate grapes. We choose
deep, fresh soils, to delay ripening, and avoid hydric stress. These are sandy loams where the clay component provides mineral nutrients
and water retention, while the sand component prevents the silt and clay part from compacting excessively, and guarantees water drainage. In this climate we avoid soils with abundant superficial gravel, which increases the warming effect, and might shorten the ripening season- which we rely
on to give our Malbec its intensity and flavor.
