Higher altitudes offer more sun, less UV protection and produce a thicker skinned grape that delivers a more robust taste with fresh acidity to support it. Today this wine is crafted with a minimalist approach - no oak influence so the "authentic" expression of Malbec highlights the terroir of the region.
The wine comes mostly from vineyards of more than 100 years old combined with 15 years old vineyards and located at 7,545 feet in elevation. Intense and almost black in color with violet hues, the nose highlights elegant spices and fresh floral aromas that lead to bright acidity and rich flavors of black and red fruits in.
